Benham Artists

Bruce Barnbaum's photography expands upon the dynamics he finds everywhere in nature, relating forces that move the universe to the sweeping forms that mold his imagery. His first book, Visual Symphony, illustrates his range of subject matter approached alternately in a realistic and abstract manner.

A long-time resident artist of the gallery and a perennial local favorite based in Granite Falls, WA, Bruce Barnbaum recently unveiled his third Benham exhibition, comprising his most riveting and original work to date. One of the highlights of the show is the "slit canyons" wall - a haunting and lyrical composition of light, form and motion, resonating with emotion. This sumptuous array of photographs, shrouded in a poetic mystery, urges the viewer to unlock the many secrets lurking beneath the façade. Bruce's background in math and physics is clearly evident as each image flows into the other in a continuous series of unbroken lines and shapes, like lucid elaborations of complex equations. The result is intriguing and often recalls to mind the tumultuous and dynamic forces of the universe, where space and dimension stretch the limits of the human imagination.

The Benham Gallery has available a limited number of prints by Bruce Barnbaum. We believe art is best sold on a one-to-one basis and will generally provide any reasonable information about the arist, including the artist's resume, background, and the availability of books and prints for sale. The Benham Gallery accepts most major payment types and transactions can be carried out by e-mail, phone, mail, or better yet - by stopping by in person so we can familiarize you with the the work. The pictures on this site are no match compared to seeing the real thing in person.
