Bruce McLean (b.1944)

University of Southampton

Scottish *Performance artist and painter, born in Glasgow. He studied at *Glasgow School of Art, then at *St Martin's School of Art from 1963 to 1966, the time when the influence of Anthony *Caro's abstract sculpture was dominant. He said of the experience: ‘The St Martin's sculpture forum would avoid every broader issue, discussing the position of one piece of metal in relation to another for hours.
