Romany Mark Bruce

Romany is an artist born in Ireland and presently living in Pietrasanta, Italy where he is spending a year sculpting in marble

His paintings and sculptures have won critical acclaim and his work is collected worldwide.

His sculptures, modelled in clay, and cast in bronze or cold-cast bronze resin have ranged from statuesque indoor torsos to heroic outdoor landmarks and mainly inspired by the human form. In later years he developed his style to deconstruct the human form, including the use of shattered windscreen glass to explore the space and light around the form.
