Bruce Stuart will open a new exhibit of his work on Saturday, May 11, from 5–8 pm at La Bastide restaurant.

Known primarily for his early work in realism as an artist painting scenes on the island of Bermuda, Stuart is increasingly experimenting in the colors and textures of San Miguel de Allende. This exhibit continues that trend and will include works from his early realism period to his more recent studies of Mexican life and culture. Mexican colors, traditions, and flavors have been a strong influence in his latest work.

“I have been working with the strong light of San Miguel and how to capture that light with color,” he said.

Recently, Stuart has been applying his acrylics in an order of color he refers to as a Chakra scale, dealing with centers of energy in the body relating to energy flows. “Red,” Stuart says, “is the root, the passion, the guts of life. Orange is the abdomen, the appetite of life and birth itself; yellow, the solar plexus, intrigue and attention; [and] green for vitality and growth.” He discovered San Miguel over 20 years ago.

Of his latest work, Stuart says, “Ideas have been coming at me like a hurricane, and through this exhibit I want to throw open people’s minds, to put new thoughts in their heads and to keep people thinking along those lines.”

Much of the exhibit is comprised of acrylic paintings, but there are also a number mixed-media and three-dimensional pieces.

Stuart likes to speak about the evolution of an artist.

“The study of art begins to have more to do with how one feels and senses rather than what they see. The mind eventually gives way to the spirit, and the spirit paints what might be the [greatest] aspect of the work.”

An artist, muralist, and sculptor from Bermuda, Stuart has built up an international patronage of his unique style of realism and eclectic art over his 40 years as an artist. One of Stuart’s murals adorns the arrival hall of Bermuda’s International Airport.

Throughout the month of May, Stuart’s exhibition will hang at La Bastide, located on the road to Dolores Hidalgo at km 5.
