Most well known for her preeminent oil paintings, Bruce Bingham has been a professional artist for over 3 decades. Her exclusive artwork is internationally sought after by collectors in 14 countries, both privately and corporately.

“As an artist I capture this magical moment in time on canvas for you with explosions of color, juicy oil paints and textures with lush brushwork. I believe we live in a world filled with wonder, surrounded by hidden beauty naturally embedded everywhere. Many miss it, some never see it, and others overlook it.”

I have spent most of my artistic path focused on painting, specifically with acrylics. Although, that doesn’t limit my interest and excitement for other art materials. I’ve also enjoyed learning intricacies of water color and oil, as well as crafting and woodworking with my husband and hope to broaden my passion through these different mediums. My inspiration is drawn from natural beauty which of course is in the eye of the beholder. So it’s been wonderful to see how this changes with each season of my life. I enjoy painting and creating because it’s limitless. I will never conquer its boundaries and for that I am truly thankful that God has given me such a love for art.

The need to create has always been a part of me even though I had no formal artistic training before beginning college. I taught art at all levels, K-12, and have experimented in nearly every medium possible, but now concentrate on doodle art and collages. I can take any word, name, etc. and create a personalized piece of art. Some of that is also found in the collages I create from old books, maps, magazines, sheet music…any thing I think works well together. Both mediums invite the observer to look and look again. My goal is to create a “feeling”, not a “thing”.

Art is vital to my existence, in fact I try to make something every day.  Primarily a painter, my work is evolving to include more collage elements.  Torn maps, exploded fireworks, losing lotto tickets, and tattered children’s books are a few items I save from the trash and repurpose to build my compositions and support my narratives.

My creative process is driven by the philosophies of Barney Saltzberg’s “beautiful oops”, and of Salvador Dali’s “certainty of chance”.  I love to experiment, problem solve, and create very unique work.

I’m a proud graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, with a BFA in Visual Art Studies, and a teaching certificate in art K-12.  I taught elementary art for nine years for AISD, and now enjoy teaching private classes, workshops, and summer camps. The Cuernavaca neighborhood has been my home for the last 18 years, where I live with my husband Cris, daughter Addi, and dog Ranger.

My art explores the relationship between visual arts and music. I create paintings of significant musical instruments placing them in situations that represent the musical style and energy of their fans, pop-culture of the times and other idiosyncrasies associated with the musicians. By combining an energetic use of color and metal I capture both the raw energy and power of the subject instrument.

I’ve enjoyed drawing and painting all my life, While I started off exclusively doing monochromatic designs, I’ve found that I love an overabundance of color, and enjoy bringing out the colors hiding in nature – and even some colors that are hiding so deeply that they don’t exist except in my imagination.  I work primarily in acrylics, and do work with a lot of movement in it.

Art for me usually ranges from colorful abstractions of landscape to more surreal and mystical paintings. My process of working takes the form of a pendulum at times. It swings back and forth between the study of Nature, Her color and composition, and intuitive expression from within myself, which sometimes takes a more mystical form. Having practiced meditation for more than half my life, when I immerse myself in the creation of art, it also becomes a process of meditation. When working in silence and connecting with that deepest part of myself, whether working from memory or allowing images to arise as they will, diverse and surprising compositions result.

My art form is Chinese Brush Painting and Chinese Calligraphy.  Brush painting is judged on the skill of the brushstroke.  That skill is learned through Chinese Calligraphy, which I practice every morning.  In ancient China, calligraphy was considered the highest art form and in the Mandarin language, there is no word for “painting” as such.  The Chinese would say that I “wrote” these pictures.  Chinese brush painting does not use any of the rules of Western art.  I try to “experience” rather than just “look” and then paint with my spirit or, as the Chinese would say, my “heart-mind”.  I try to capture the energy of the subject, not the pictographic image.  I am enjoying being connected with painters throughout over 2,000 years of history, studying their skills and techniques but painting subjects that I enjoy from my perspective.
