Bruce Rimell's Artwork Archive

:: Bruce Rimell's Art Archive 2002-2010 ::

This archive showcases work from 2002 to 2009, with particular focus on my formative ink-and-marker works which forms my earliest forays into visionary art and explorations of sacred mythical archetypes. The Salviaspace project portal is also accessible here, containing a wealth of imagery, poetry and video iunspired by salvia divinorum visions. My first formal series, Modern Palaeolithic, which debuted at the Leeds College of Art & Design in November 2009, also features here, as does Life:Blood, my first visionary series. Please click on one of the images below to view. Each page will open in a new browser window.
