Bruce Montcombroux’s exhibition considers what it means to be somewhere – how we inhabit, observe, and describe a place. His drawings and sculptures depict cobbled-together structures that combine elements from physical, textual, and digital realms.  Motivated in part by Northrup Frye’s statement that Canadian identity can be summed up in the question “where is here?” Montcombroux’s works explore identity, geography, landscape, and place-making in the 21st century.

Bruce Montcombroux was born in Oxford, England and immigrated to Canada as a child. He has lived in numerous locations across Canada and currently resides in Edmonton, where he is Assistant Professor of Fine Art at MacEwan University. Montcombroux exhibits nationally and internationally, has attended residencies in the United States and Iceland, and has been the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant.
