About Bruce New

“My work is an attempt to document my existence – to leave a visual record of my thoughts, ideas, and fantasies. I reside in the wilds of Kentucky, with a bird and our son, on a mountaintop, right next to the sun, where I create my artwork high on butterfly wine.”

Bruce New has lived in Kentucky his entire life and has always made art. As a child he created notebooks of comic heroes and battle scenes of war but never thought he could be an artist and instead dreamed of being Reggie Jackson. Bruce uses pen on paper, usually from old books, and does the drawings in parts, cutting them up and then using collage to make them into new different compositions. He has a compulsive “need” to make these things and the work basically makes itself; he just tries to not get in the way.
