Artist Gil Bruvel doesn’t confine himself to one method of producing creative work. Whether painting, sculpting, or creating functional art, Bruvel’s creative energy flows through each of his pieces. For his Bending the Lines series, the Australian-born, French-raised artist uses simple materials to express complex metaphors.
What has always impressed us about Gil Bruvel is his ability to push the limits. Not only on the medium he is working with, which, like what he showed at the Juxtapoz Clubhouse in Miami were stainless steel sculptures, but just testing the limits of how he approaches new materials and narratives in his work. His newest solo show, Bending the Lines, which opens at Laura Rathe Fine Art in Houston on March 21st, sees the artist working with wood and exploring the boundaries of the material in a new series of almost painting-like-sculptures.
