News & Events

New Poetry Books  

The 'Xibalba Books' Poetry Series
The emergence of an exciting new venture in my creative life

In spring 2021, I realised I've been a poet for longer than I've been an artist. Now I've decided to bring this into the foreground of my creative life, delving into my poetry archive to produce seven collections of poetry and one novella. I'm delighted to bring these beautifully presented A5 books to you through my personal publishing imprint, Xibalba Books. Subjects range from queer creative mythology to a Mexican travelogue, and Hangman Starman, a dark and strange novella. Excitingly, this process has liberated an ambitious new work: Nine Nights Awake. Coming soon in Spring 2023.

Boundary Strider  

Boundary Strider - My Artistic Debut in Australia
Wollongong Art Gallery, Burelli Street, Wollongong, NSW 2500, Australia - Sep to Nov 2022

I'm delighted to announce my participation in a long-awaited group show in Wollongong, NSW, Australia. I'll be debuting my brand new multi-panel artwork 'Are We Orbiting Simulated Lives, or Memories Of Everything, Everything All At Once...?' In an age where images are generated at unparalleled speed, when mythopoetic experience is a distant memory or belongs to the non-Western Other, 'Boundary Strider' arrives with a different vision: an imagistic exploration of the more-than-human, the natural world and the slow art of the hand. The exhibition opens on Fri 2nd Sep at 6.30pm

621 Gallery  

Art Nunz Exhibition at 621 Gallery
650-3 Railroad Sq, Tallahassee, Florida, FL 32310, USA - October 2022

I've been invited to exhibit a couple of artworks at this upcoming group show of 'Art Nunz' in Tallahassee, Florida, USA this October 2022. Originally a collective formed some twelve years ago around a student group at Florida State University and their professor of painting, the remarkable Carrie Ann Baade, it has been invited open to a small selection of likeminded global artists over the years, and I am honoured to have been asked in 2014. I will be exhibiting my 2017 artwork 'Boy Under The Earth' and a print of my 2016 memorial artwork 'Queer Spirit Over Orlando'.

Are We Orbiting 1
Things have been a little slow on the website update front this past year, but some exciting new artworks are now visible: these include my new multi-panel work Are We Orbiting Simulated Lives, Or Memories Of Everything, Everything All At Once...? as well as two new Human Visions artworks. Stay tuned for late 2022 and early 2023 for a new music album, and several exciting new poetry projects!

Broken Ground  

There's Life On Broken Ground
An intimate and emotional exploration of local landscapes during the global pandemic

I am proud to proud to bring you my first longform art film, 'There's Life On Broken Ground', produced over 15 months during the 2020-21 Covid-19 pandemic. Created from my 2020 music album of the same name, the film runs through 16 ‘episodes’ exploring different seasons, landscapes and feelings, all presented as intimate and emotional responses to the local landscape and the strange situations of life during a global pandemic. This is a unique production, and nothing like anything I have ever created before in my arts practice, perhaps mapping out a new possible future...


Feelspace - Bruce's third ambient music album
A 40-minute journey into ambient glitch with gestural and spontaneous movements

I am proud to announce the release through Bandcamp of my third album 'Feelspace', an emotional and meditative musical journey produced during the third coronavirus lockdown in the UK. At a time when I really needed to feel space and new experiences, I delved deep into new musical textures instead, experimenting with glitch textures and spontaneous compositions. An evolution from my previous albums, it retains the orchestral textures of There's Life On Broken Ground and the meditative atmosphere of Sparkling Isolation but with a new emotional sensitivity.

Fungible Token: 'Artwork' & Statement of Protest Against NFTs - Some of you may have seen the emergence of the NFT crypto art market. I have serious concerns about this new venture in relation to environmental damage, art theft, and a rigged hyper-capitalist system which is toxic to the wellbeing of most creatives and artists. I have produced a daft conceptual artwork and a serious statement of protest against NFTs and cryptoart here.

Minoan Epiphany Book Cover  

The Minoan Epiphany: A Bronze Age Visionary Culture
A fascinating new monograph on Minoan art available as a free PDF Electronic Publication

I am delighted to announce the release of my new research monograph after 11 years of research into Minoan art from Bronze Age Crete. This beautifully illustrated text explores a corpus of images from gold rings and other sealing images which depicts the epiphany, a series of rituals in which religious celebrants appear to experience direct and seemingly ecstatic encounters with deities. This collection of essays explores this central aspect of Minoan religion, taking a strongly archaeological focus to allow the artefacts to speak for themselves, moving from traditional ‘representational’ interpretations into ‘embodied’ perspectives in which the ecstatic capabilities of the human body throw new light on Aegean Bronze Age ritual practices, and whichchallenge passive modern assumptions about the nature of religious feelings and experiences. This book is released as a free Electronic Publication in PDF format, available here on my website, on my Academia.edu portal, and also via Google Books.

Voice Project  

The Voice Project - 2020 Update!
Creating a 13-panel, 33-ft long visionary mural of the Island of Britain

My Voice Project, my ten year initiative to create a 13 panel, 33 foot long visionary mural expressing the lost mythologies of the Island of Britain, is nearing completion! The Daylight image is due to be finished by summer 2020, while autumn and winter will be the time when the UV image across all 13 panels will be completed. A film and a book are planned for early-to-mid 2021, but for now you can explore the Voice Project website to see some of the latest stages in this grand labour of love! It feels fantastic to have one of my flagship projects coming so close to being finished after so many years.
