Win Bruhl has taught printmaking and drawing at four universities since 1970. He is currently chairman of the Department of Art at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. During forty years of printmaking, his interest in the landscape has taken many directions. Study and travel in Mexico, living in the mountain west of Montana, and traveling throughout the United States has brought him into contact with varied people and places much of which is evident in his work.
Win was introduced to printmaking in 1965 during his baccalaureate studies. Following the completion of the Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking he began a thirty-five year career in teaching at the university level.
In addition to being a studio artist, Win also studied pre-conquest cultures of Mesoamerica, which resulted in numerous study trips to Mexico often accompanied by students.
Of the American landscape, Win Bruhl makes this observation. “The landscape provides an opportunity to be in a quiet place, often in solitude. Brilliant colors, gentle breezes, and natural patterns and rhythms supply a harmony of visual and audible information for an artist’s interpretation while the subject remains always dynamic. Seasons, times of day and atmospheric effects constantly change. The subject of landscape is inexhaustible."
