Ian Bruce's studio in London

The Pink Portraits by Ian Bruce

Ian Bruce is an artist and portrait painter working in London. In this video interview, which can currently be seen HERE, he talks about his latest project – a series called The Pink Portraits.

The portraits all feature people in a state of transition: a clown who has just changed into his normal clothes backstage (but still wears the face paint); a burlesque dancer whose stomach still bears the marks from her bone corset; and Ian Bruce himself as a transvestite stripped of his wig and dress, but still bearing traces of his female alter-ego, such as red nail varnish.

My Windows Movie Maker died a horrible death yesterday, so I had to put the video together in a dodgy online editing suite called JayCut – hence the poor quality and rough cutting. An improved version will be embedded here soon.

Just found out that if you (like me) missed the Rothko exhibition at Tate Modern, you can take a virtual panoramic tour online, HERE. It works relatively well for Rothko’s paintings, because they don’t require up-close study. On the other hand, you don’t get a sense of the atmosphere of his work. It’s a bit like glancing at a line of Rothko postcards in the Tate shop.
