Bruce Voyce, Photographer Of Zinc

Bruce Voyce, the photographer of the photo of zinc in the book, Amazing British Columbia, has sent some information about his sculptures. He is in Taiwan now, still doing art.

Since I was a child I have felt most at home while creating art. I graduated from university with a science degree before studying art in Italy and Canada. Everything I do lets me see the world from a larger perspective. Since Art and culture are tied together, Taiwan should be a very inspiring place to create artwork.

I am interested in the way nature and humans touch each other. That helps me to create works that celebrate life. In my public art I change a passing moment into something mysterious and beautiful. I explore materials and make hybrid forms that are natural and artificial at the same time. These sculptures seem both familiar and enigmatic. They take a step beyond self-expression, towards illuminating our physical consciousness.

Art can give a person a sense of being connected to our environment. Sculpture can connect art, science, nature, and humanity. Nature gently takes back technology; the landscape is mixed with the art, and the art with the land. With these sculptures, the environment becomes a theatre, creating a world of possibilities and wonder.
