Angela Zajac-Bruch, a primarily self-taught multimedia painter most known for her sunsets, has recently relocated to Chapel Hill NC. Her latest work reflects using found items to create abstract landscape collages. Embedded items draw the viewer in and keeps them guessing. Reusing items reflects her love for recycling.
Extensive travel throughout her life, photographing the world to later paint those images, has given her work a unique perspective. She has visited the scenes painted and wants the viewers to join her. Using vibrant colors, she freely creates beautiful landscapes evoking peace amidst a chaotic nation. She is urging you to slow down and notice the nature around you.
Born and raised in the beautiful country of Dorrance Pennsylvania, her love of art began at an early age. Painting realistic plaster craft lead to profit and local recognition. In high school, she won second place in the state of Pennsylvania for her realistic clay hand built Dead Fish. Serving in the military, her works of nature, painted in oil and drawn with pen and ink, showed in the base gallery. Several of her paintings sold to decorate the historic Hotel Del Monte in California.
Most recently her work was in the 43rd Annual Anderson Juried Show and Art On The Town. She is also one of the 8 artists chosen for Greenville, SC 2018 Flat Out Under Pressure contest. Starting January 2019, her paintings will decorate a recycling bin in downtown for 1 year.
Angela Bruch is a Greenville, South Carolina based Landscape Artist. With interest in painting, an eye for beauty, and a love of nature, I was creative at an early age. A military career and family left Art as a hobby for many years. Art journaling almost daily helped develop and maintain my skills.
My paintings are most known for their beautiful colors, inspired by surrounding landscapes. Traditional acrylic and oil paints, are used in a fashion leading to paintings that allow the viewer to feel like they are standing in the scenes. A place to find peace in a chaotic world. Many scenes come from living on Lake Marion part time where sunsets and water scenes abound.
The latest series of abstract landscapes are created using litter collected from the streets of Greenville. The viewer gets drawn in trying to figure out what the items are. Many layers are used creating interesting texture. Other items added lead to truly unique one of a kind painting.
After painting regularly, the past several years my paintings have drawn the attention of buyers, a gallery, and several shows. I was a recent winner of 2018 Flat Out Under Pressure contest. 2 of my paintings will be on a recycling bin in downtown Greenville January 2019 - 2020. My paintings can also be custom ordered and seen online.
