Alfred J. Bruey, American (1932- )

Alfred Bruey started out in the art field as a photographer, even before photography was considered a fine art form. Since he was a teen, Alfred had access to a darkroom. Much of his photographic art was done with darkroom techniques without the use of a camera.

After photography, Alfred began drawing and painting and, in 2000, he turned to sculpting. Alfred obtained some welding equipment and began taking welding classes. He turned out small sculptures for seven to eight years before finally developing an interest in public sculpture. Alfred prefers using found steel and materials in his sculptures when available. “Green Galaxy” was the first large sculpture Alfred completed and it is currently on display at The Ella Sharp Museum in Jackson, Michigan. Alfred’s work can be acquired through Ken Thompson at Flatlander’s Gallery in Blissfield, Michigan.
