Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro wills premier his largest artwork to date,  an enormous multi-acre walk-through installation, at Sensorio in Paso Robles, California beginning May 19, 2019. The British-based artist’s Field of Light is his largest site-specific project to date. The multi-acre, walk-through sculptural composition will cover Sensorio’s rolling hills with an array of over 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber-optics, gently illuminating the landscape in subtle blooms of morphing color.  Powered by solar, the stunning exhibition is expected to captivate visitors, inviting them to engage with the countryside through an ethereal light-based and sculptural experience.

London-born Bruce Munro is best known for large-scale light-based artworks inspired largely by his continuous study of natural light and his curiosity for shared human experiences. With a fine arts degree, early career training in the lighting design industry and an inventive urge for reuse, his art captures his responses to literature, music, science, and the world around him. His work has been commissioned by and displayed in special exhibitions in galleries, parks, grand estates, cathedrals, botanical gardens, and museums across the globe. Smithsonian Magazine has called Munro’s work “stunning” while the Guardian noted, “This is art you feel rather than art you view.”

Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley on view at The Autry (March 31-January 5th)

Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley at the Autry Museum of the American West explores the artist’s four-decade career and his deeply thoughtful body of work, a combination of personal experience, social observation and the influence of art historical icons from Leonardo da Vinci to René Magritte and Andy Warhol.

Influenced by the Pop movement as well as the stylized, pictorial narratives of traditional Indian painting, David Bradley’s oeuvre occupies a space in between Native modernism and American pop, and has an immediate, visceral impact. Best known for his keenly observant and witty narratives,  Bradleys work depicts the Native experience of tourist and commercial culture in rich detail and bold, saturated colors. Populated by a wide range of characters, from Tonto and the Lone Ranger to Bill and Hillary Clinton, Vincent Van Gogh, and Georgia O’Keeffe, the artist comments on and satirizes a wide range of themes from Hollywood clichés to Native stereotypes, the art market, and the racism imbedded within them.

“The Autry aims to confront and address outdated understandings of Native art, and this exhibition apprehends old ideas and turns them on their head. David Bradley’s paintings are accessible, imaginative, and absolutely reflective of our mission to share the diverse stories and perspectives of the American West,” said W. Richard West, Jr. (Southern Cheyenne), the Autry’s President and CEO. “We are thrilled that our visitors will experience this cross-section of media from the artist.”
