(b. 1958), Brooklyn, New York,
Bruce Lieberman began his career in New York City, relocating permanently to Water Mill in 1990. Lieberman studied with the sculptor Robert White and with many of Hans Hoffman’s former students, chief among them was Paul Georges. It was Georges who introduced Lieberman to the New York Figurative Art world of the 1970s. Mr. Lieberman went on to study at Brandeis with Georges and at Brooklyn College with Lennart Anderson, where he received an MFA. In the 80’s, he was deeply rooted in the New York Figurative art world, Lieberman began to show on the Lower East Side and had his first one man show at Pene Du Bois Gallery in the East Village.
His works are “personal and honest, and embrace the quality of paint and the process.” Mr. Lieberman’s work is in numerous museum and private collections worldwide and has exhibited in many galleries and museums in New York and on Long Island. Critical review and commentary have appeared in books, newspapers, journals and magazines, including: The New York Times, Newsday, Huffington Post.
