John Brunsdon

Biography

John Brunsdon (1933-2014) studied at the Royal College of Art from 1955 to 1958. He was head of the printmaking department at St.Albans College of Art for sixteen years and now lives near Diss on the Suffolk/Norfolk border where he has his own print workshop. He has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe and has participated in many one-man shows and group exhibitions in this country. His work is represented in the Arts Council and the British Council collections the Victoria and Albert Museum and various private and public collections in the United States. Landscape has always been John Brunsdon's main interest even when images were still abstract and influenced by American abstract expressionists such as Kline and Motherwell. He is interested in man's influence on the landscape - the contrast between buildings and countryside: the one temporary the other timeless and primeval. His most recent print and paintings exhibitions were held at the John Russell Gallery in Ipswich and at the Alice Simsar Gallery Ann Arbor U.S.A.
