About Bruce Riley

I've been in Chicago for about fourteen years. Since about 1980 my focus has been on maintaining a studio. The art I make constantly changes. I experiment a lot. Since 1995 my art has been a sort of organic abstraction. Lately I've been entertaining notions of figuration. A sense of beauty has always been an important element of my art making.
