Bruce Gagnier

9BGMoses-1200x800 복사

Throughout his career, Bruce Gagnier has kept redefining the human figure, which is the most conservative subject in the genre of sculpture. The moral side of Gagnier’s sculpture lies in its process; the figure changes without a predetermined image, and so does the artist himself. Through this process, the truth of the human situation is unfurled; we are in a constant tension between inner life and outer circumstances. Gagnier received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2016, and the Arts and Letters Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2014. Gagnier has taught at Yale University, Sarah Lawrence, and Parsons. Since 1979, he has taught drawing and sculpture at the New York Studio School. Gagnier lives and works in Brooklyn.

 

브루스 가니에는 조각이라는 장르에서 가장 보수적인 소재라 할 수 있는 인체를 소재로, 이를 재정의하는 일을 계속해왔다. 브루스 가니에 조각의 도덕성은 그의 작업 과정 속에 있다. 그의 인체는 미리 계획되고 정해진 이미지 없이 작업 중 변화하고, 작가 자신도 마찬가지다. 이 과정 속에서 인간 실존에 관한 진실이 그 모습을 드러내는데, 우리의 내면과 외부의 조건은 끊임없이 역동적이고 유기적 관계 속에 있다는 사실이다. 가니에는 그의 시간 대부분을 작업실에서 보내면서 나머지 시간은 학생들을 가르쳤다. 그의 강의는 깊이와 추상적 사고의 중요성을 강조한다는 특징 때문에 널리 알려져 있다. 그는 예일, 사라 로렌스, 파슨스 등에서 학생들을 가르쳤고, 1979년부터 뉴욕 스튜디오 스쿨에서 드로잉과 조각을 가르쳐왔다. 현재 브룩클린에 거주하며 작품 활동을 하고 있다.
