• Britta von Saltza-Bruce

    • I have always liked the seductive, playful quality of wet paint, vibrant color, dramatic light and dark contrast, and all the wonderful effects possible through the act of painting. Working expressively, with a very physical application of paint, layering, and big, loose brushwork, I work to capture and convey feeling and emotion, in large, figurative work. Combining my current state of mind; a little humor and imagination; evocative photos and memories of people and places; I work to reconstruct these images onto canvas.
    • For over 20 years, I have been living in Maine, with the striking, rugged coastline; beautiful lakes and quarries; and wonderful woods and trails; always a limitless source of inspiration for my painting, which I continue to explore in my State Street Theatre studio, in downtown Portland, Maine.
