Sun Glitter X was chosen from 6422 entries as a Finalist in the Bluethumb Art Prize 2021


This original, abstract expressionist artwork has rather intriguing mark making with a vibrant palette making it a perfect statement piece.

Drawing on inspiration from a recent trip to The Whitsundays and North Queensland, 'Sun Glitter X' expresses my inner feelings of the sun reflecting off the ocean.

Sun glitter is a bright, sparkling light formed when sunlight reflects from water waves and ripples, usually caused by natural movement of the water. Light reflects from smooth surfaces by specular reflection so a rippled but locally smooth surface such as water will reflect the sun at different angles at each point on the surface of the small waves. As a result, a viewer in the right position will see many small images of the sun, formed by portions of the waves that are orientated correctly to reflect the sun's light, in a constantly changing pattern.

I see these sun glitters in the form of 'Bokeh' or a pleasing or aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur. Having carefully studied the water and sunlight reflections on every trip to the river and ocean, I build the painting with multiple layers, adding various colours, shiny shimmering elements, dashes, splashes and dancing dots.

To quote Claude Monet - "These landscapes of water and reflection have become an obsession"

Reflections on water satisfy my obsession for shifting shapes and magical hidden layers and depths. When making my art, I search for elements, structure and places that intuitively fit into 'my reality'. This is why I frequently create imagery that's full of rhythms, colors, lines and most importantly, motion.

This series of paintings creates a gentle feeling of freedom and enlightenment. Viewers often say that they love my paintings because of the richness and depth of the colors plus the texture of the materials I use. I love it when people feel a sense of fascination and satisfaction when my paintings adorn their walls for many years to come.

Every painting is varnished with professional quality artists varnish which gives a protective surface and exquisite sheen that strengthens the colour depth.

This artwork is stretched on deep edged 3.5mm traditional kiln dried wooden stretcher bars that sit perfectly on your wall.
The edges are neatly finished, staple free and painted a rich black to complement this painting.


Some feedback from my art sold online:
'I was going to purchase just one, but I couldn’t bear the thought of separating them. They compliment each other and create movement and narrative that wouldn’t be complete without the other.'
'Love your work, excited to see more.'
'Bruce how on earth do you paint these? This work is another dimension.'
'It's modern, inspiring and really pleasing to the eye.'
'Your talent increases with every artwork you produce. I just love it!'
'Bruce is amazing to deal with - he was so helpful and excellent in his communication.'
'This canvas is amazingly beautiful and looks perfect in our rumpus. I do not have the words to say how much I love it. Thank you Bruce so much.'
‘The clever use of colour intensity merged with subtle hues is seductively mesmerising.’
‘I like the way the light and colours reflect and float with recurrent bursts of energy.’
