JACK BRIDE’s installations embody subtle energies brought forth as physical objects. Living in Alberta has generated these energies in specific forms; the feelings and experiences within sacred sites and regions are truly inspiring. Such places speak at a subtle frequency—a voice of the land, a voice that Bride captures in visual form in his work. With this installation, a psychic landscape is combined with the material world, showing a synthesis of outside and in. Approaching this window, viewers can contemplate their own image reflected and placed within Bride’s field of vision.
JACK BRIDE works in realms of the esoteric, numinous, transcendental and ecstatic. He develops a visual language to create experiences that reflect back to the viewer a sense of the sacred. Alberta’s resonance is a vital well of inspiration for Bride, and he is grateful to be here.
