Bruce Wall is an artist who favors using a blend of painting, drawing, mixed media, and found objects where the distinction between 2-D and 3-D elements is intentionally ambiguous. In his Alphabet series there is an exploration of the world of everyday consumer objects and toys using the alphabet as an organizational device. Set against a faux splash of silver with suspended paint drips over buckets, the resulting cacophony of forms is a celebration of random association, form, color, and, perhaps, the ultimate absurdity of categorization itself.

Wall’s work has been reviewed in ArtforumARTNews, and the New York Times and is in the collections of City College of the City University of New York, the Aldrich Museum, Ridgefield, Connecticut; the Ackland Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and locally at the Lehigh Valley Health Network, Allentown. He holds a MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA from the University of Texas, Austin, and is also a Fulbright-Hayes Grant recipient for travel and research on folk art designs in India.

Recently he held the Cecil and Eleanor Lipkin Endowed Chair in the Fine and Performing Arts at Northampton Community College, where he is a Professor in the Fine Art Program.
