Bruce Piermarini is an abstract artists who seeks to fix miraculous moment of spontaneous perfection. His pourings generate looping, squirming, organic forms set against a distinct, but also fluid, background. The pictures are very illusionistic, showing modeling, foreshortening and dizzying spaces. Often they seem to tell a bizarre tale. They evoke both the biological and the geological. Each one is a magnificently orchestrated, wholly improvisational, yet completely natural, event. Each is free yet precise, commanding yet exquisitely detailed.

 

 
Piermarini has been an amazing painter for more than twenty-five years. His work is fiercely frenetic, they leap out at you from every direction. Only when you make a conscious effort to isolate each painting, do you start to see how very unique, sophisticated and intensely felt, each individual picture is. And only then, returning to the general aspect, can you surrender to his madness.
 
Piermarini belongs to the tradition of large scale, lyrical, abstract painting begun by Jackson Pollock, the Abstract Expressionists, and the Color Field painters. His main influence has been Morris Louis because, like Louis, he loves heroic scale, and like Louis, he explores the expressive possibilities of pouring paint. Since Louis, these possibilities have been greatly expanded by the new, water based, acrylic medium. Piermarini has been one of the pioneers working with the new acrylics.
 
 
 
 
Bruce Piermarini was born and grew up in Leominster in Central Massachusetts. He is the oldest of 6 children. Among the early experiences that help shape his outlook, he was working in a factory after school pouring molten plastics into moulds. He also played in a rock band as well as a marching band and can play the organ, the saxophone and the harmonica. Piermarini enrolled at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 1975. There he studied with the Color Field painters Dan Christensen, Larry Zox and Ronnie Landfield. But he was most drawn to the styles of Morris Louis and Larry Poons.
 
Between 1978 and 1980 he was a graduate student at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, in Baltimore. Here he was influenced by Salvatore Scarpita, a conceptual artist, and did a number of amusing conceptual pieces like exhibiting a canoe which had been crushed by a steamroller. After receiving his degree he returned to Massachusetts and came together with those painters who later would become known as the New New painters.
