Bruce A. Morrison

Studying at the University of Iowa's School of Art, Morrison majored in Photography and minored in Painting and Serigraphy. The photographic landscape is treated in large, medium and digital formats; in painting Morrison prefers a plein air approach as well as a representational style, while his work in serigraphy plays upon a more graphic interpretation in shapes, line and color.

Bruce has a deep personal interest in the natural heritage of our remaining Tallgrass Prairie, and much of his work over the past decade has been deeply influenced by this subject. He has spent these years devoting time, energy, and his work in furthering and encouraging prairie reconstruction/restoration projects and education in NW Iowa.

Bruce and his wife Georgeann live and work on a prairie remnant in rural NW Iowa in the Tallgrass Prairie Pothole region.

From the Tallgrass

The region in which I live influences the work I do each day, whether its through the ground glass of a camera or on the canvas. I paint and photograph from the "neighborhood" so-to-speak and am greatly influenced by our "natural" and "cultural" heritage. The work here is "from the Tallgrass", in every sense of the word.
