British artist Bruce Munro is best known for immersive large-scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in shared human experience. Since his debut exhibition at Longwood Gardens 10 years ago, he has wowed audiences the world over with his artwork.
From Mexico City to Phoenix, Australia to Japan, his art evolves with each exhibition. "Ten years is a long time; it's one-sixth of my life so far," he says. "Today, I am more focused as an artist. Instead of slowing down, I feel that I am speeding up. Time is precious and there is so much to do."
Reflecting on his first exhibition at Longwood, which served as his very first garden exhibition in the U.S., Munro notes the role of the garden and how it influences his work. "Gardens make a huge difference as they relax our mood," he says. "I remember watching visitors enter and exit Longwood during the installation phase of my first exhibition. People always left with a relaxed demeanor. Gardens are good for our mind, body, and soul. My hope for those guests experiencing the new exhibition is that they leave with a lighter heart.
