Bruce Backhouse – (1950) Bruce Backhouse (b. 1950) is a landscape painter who lives in Johannesburg. Bruce started out as a fine art student at Rhodes University under Brian Bradshaw, then enjoyed a successful 25-year career in advertising as an art director and creative director. He spent eight years managing Image Bank South Africa before becoming a full-time artist in 2004.

Throughout his career, Bruce has immersed himself in the vast arid interior of South Africa – the Great Karoo and the Kalahari. His paintings are the consequence of his intense visceral relationship with uninhabited aridity devoid of human manipulation. However, rather than be labelled purely as a painter of landscapes, his figurative paintings come from a childhood habit of doing caricatures and wry doodles.

In June of 2020 she had her first solo exhibition with StateoftheART Gallery titled “What it feels like to be in Water”. In terms of theme, her work explores the concept of liminality in relation to emotional states. With regards to subject matter, she gravitates toward the use of organic objects, specifically plants, animals and human figures stating that these elements are living and breathing, thus we feel a stronger connection to them. She desires that her work create a visceral experience that encourages and propels viewers to tap into the complexity and obscurity of the emotions that they feel and recognise that they exist within a liminal space.
