Derek Brueckner is a sessional instructor in drawing at the University of Manitoba School of Art. He received a BFA from the University of Manitoba and an MFA from Hunter College in New York. He has exhibited widely. He currently works with digital prints in combination with drawing and painting the body/figure. HIs current research involves dialectics encompassing the processes of haptic (hand made), ocular and technological image making. These processes explore the physical and pictorial characteristics of paint in conjunction with dematerialized cybernetic pictorial spaces. Often the imagery in the work makes reference these processes and the ambivalence regarding the cultural impact of technology on the body and the way it feels and perceives. The subject matter also references corporeal entities, aliens, mutation, cloning, morphing, rhizomes, fractals, kaleidoscopes, patterns, and spectacle. The work is a reaffirmation of painting/drawing in relation to the ambivalence of technology.
