Hugo Bruce: Life and Death

Hugo Bruce: Life and Death

Hugo Bruce is a British contemporary sculptor based between London and Barcelona. Born in 1969 in Berkshire, England. A sculptor since 2005 and painter since 1993. His sculptures represent the natural cycles of life and death, and the capacity of nature to metamorphosize and evolve in distinct and unexpected ways. The works are allegories in which life seems to miraculously follow death, in the form of fragile branches and flowers sprouting out from skulls. The plants and flowers growing from the spines of the figures prompt the idea that we are witnessing a strange rebirth of both life and love. Creation and death go hand in hand, each vital for the existence of the other. The work attempts to capture the transience of nature, while also suggesting the cyclic and infinite nature of life. Hugo Bruce utilizes extensive experience of foundry techniques and welding. Recent work attempts to distill essential themes of human experience and it´s bittersweet essence. As degeneration is vital for regeneration, life may be seen as a celebration of death.
