Born in Des Moines Iowa in 1943, Carol Bruns graduated with a Fine Art degree from NYU in 1966, then studied painting and drawing at the Art Students League in New York and Academie de La Grande Chaumiere in Paris. She first exhibited in 1975 at OK Harris Gallery showing wall works made from found supports and thin, colored plaster. Her most recent exhibitions were at The Parlour Bushwick in 2015, Sculpture Space in Long Island City and SRO Gallery in Brooklyn in 2017-18. Over the decades, she has continued to show in New York and Atlanta, and received numerous commissions from New York architects and designers. Ms. Bruns' current work is sculpture and drawing, mediums in which she finds archetypal characters who assert mythic presence, aesthetic values, and often point to political conditions.
