About Bruce Denny

Bruce Denny is passionate about art as a means of communication. With his bronze sculptures, he aims to evoke ideas and emotions in us all. In his first exhibition, "Humanity", he explored individual human traits. By stripping back all the trappings of culture and class, his naked human forms lovingly modelled in clay and beautifully cast in bronze inspire us to think about ourselves and how we live our lives. "Interaction" is the theme of his second body of work. Here, he explores how we communicate with each other and with our environment, and reminds us that everything we do can have an effect on those around us.

Bruce is available for public and private commissioned projects, large and small

Biography / CV of Bruce Denny

Born in 1967 in Suffolk, Bruce Denny spent his youth making things out of anything he could lay his hands on. He was fascinated by both the way things worked and their form and structure. His school years exacerbated the struggle between art and science. In the end, Science was the victor, leading to an honours degree in Biology and Chemistry. He wanted to understand what life was all about from the molecular level up.

With this thorough grounding, he came to realise that the complexities of human physiology and anatomy play only a small role in the wider picture of life, and that social interaction was key to his further development. He left the solitude of the laboratory behind for a job in the City of London, where the realities of modern day life were played out to the full.

Whilst financially rewarding and socially engaging, Bruce felt that his creativity was being stifled. He turned to theatre and the arts to fill the void.

In his search, Bruce discovered sculpture. His love of the human form and function placed figurative works at the centre of his interest and he signed up for a course at Morley College to introduce him to the techniques of life modelling in clay.

Finally he had found something to bring all his skills and experiences together.

Sculpture requires a methodical approach and good spatial awareness, traits usually exhibited by a good scientist. At the same time the original ideas and concepts and the final piece of work require artistic creativity. I have found a medium in which I can express my ideas and desires utilising all my skills and experiences, says Bruce

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
