About the exhibition

How Soon Is Now? brings together a selection of Bruce Reynolds’ exquisite cast relief works with two-dimensional collaged linoleum works, to celebrate a physicality that is frequently overlooked in today’s growing digital environment. Exploring how we arrived at this point – from the archaic to a language of compressed space - Bruce’s work invites consideration of the ancient and the ‘now’. Bruce Reynolds’ work grew from collage to relief and sculpture over a number of decades. A residency in Rome focused both studio and architectural works on relief forms that occupy the space between painting and sculpture, between drawing and architecture. He describes it as being both archaic and a fresh place of representation.

Artists and Curator


Bruce Reynolds studied at the ANU School of Art, ACT, and at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne. Now based in Brisbane, Bruce’s career spans more than 30 years in Australia and abroad as an arts practitioner and educator (ANU School of Art through the 1980s and more recently at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University from 1986 to 2006). A trained painter, Bruce works across 2D and 3D media, integrating the mediums of photography, painting, sculpture and relief in his practice.
