September 16 – October 22, 2016.
Opening reception: Friday, September 16th at 8pm.
Bruce Montcombroux will be presenting an artist talk on Friday, September 16th at 7pm just prior to the opening reception.
Bruce Montcombroux approaches material and electronics as a means to co-mingle topography-as-mapping and topology-as-organizational structure. Montcombroux is influenced by personal experiences that include frequent moves, residing in remote locations, immigration, and temporary living situations. Maps, generative processes, and the diagrammatic are his current focus. With TL;DR the artist describes his experimental process: “I position my work in the flat space of drawing, the presented space of sculpture, and the virtual space of digital realms in order to negotiate shifts between volumetric and illusionary spaces.”
Montcombroux holds an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and a BFA from the University of Manitoba. His work has appeared in journals such as Grain Magazine in 2012, and in multiple press reviews. He was a mentoring artist for the RBC Artist by Artists Program at the Mendel Art Gallery, in 2013. He has attended residencies at the Banff Center, the Vermont Studio Center, and NES Artist Residency in Skagastönd, Iceland. Montcombroux has also been the recipient of numerous grants, which include the Saskatchewan Artist Board, and notably a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in 2012.
