Hazel Bruce

Profile

Hazel has been a textile artist and educator in further and higher education since 1990 and has been a textile artist since graduating from Manchester Polytechnic in 1990. She joined the 62 Group a year later and has exhibited with the group regularly since.

Born in Leeds, she moved to Belfast in 1992 and has worked in further and higher education, community arts and the museum sector. She is now joint course director of Textile Art, Design and Fashion at the Ulster University. She exhibits regularly both with the 62 Group and in national and international group shows.

Recent work has explored pattern in the urban landscape, the use and re-use of textiles, mending, piecing and patching, the Ulster Linen Industry and the impact of limitations on creative practice. Current work explores the importance of space, balance and tension in composition and is a response to an interest in the Basic Design Movement, an approach to art education practiced from the 60’s to the 80’s.
