Piece description from the artist
Once a stately Holden HR station wagon. Now in a state of decay, camouflaged in the undergrowth, she rusts and settles back into the ground from which she came.
Born 1963 in Christchurch, New Zealand, Bruce Stanfield has explored a number of creative endeavors, including music, photography, writing, and automobile customization.
Bruce was a musician in his early twenties, playing in garage bands and recording for a record label he co-founded called Suicide City. By his late twenties and early thirties he had become an award winning photographer, with Hamilton city’s largest “drive in”* studio focusing on commercial and industrial work. In addition, he also wrote articles and supplied photographs for national and international magazines.
