Bruce Little sculpts to capture the spirit of the wild African creatures he has observed and guarded for most of his life. Self taught, instinctual, the artist's technique captures the essential movement and attitudes of his subjects. Born at the foot of the majestic Drakensberg mountains in South Africa, Bruce developed an early passion for the African wilderness. He became a conservationist and professional game ranger. He sculpts by feel producing an impression of the animal's character, rather than an antomically perfect replica. A committed conservationist as well as an accomplished photographer, Bruce started working in clay to express a private passion but eventually he was persuaded by friends and family to share his artworks. He says "I sculpt to honor the animal for what it is, not for what it was". The resulting bronzes are produced in limited editions. Bruce is a great emerging talent and The Hunter Gallery is priviledged to exhibit his work.
