About Bruce Heiser
Before opening his own space in late 2004, Bruce Heiser worked with respected Brisbane based art dealer Philip Bacon AM for eight years, between 1996 and 2004.
From November 2004 through to December 2017 Heiser Galleries represented and exhibited a diverse and engaging group of artists whose practice encompassed a variety of media including photography, painting and print making, ceramics, and sculpture.
The gallery also dealt in secondary market works, with particular emphasis placed on the work of expressionist Jon Molvig along with other historically significant Queensland artists. The gallery curated a major survey exhibition of Molvig’s work – Jon Molvig: A Queensland Modern and later, in 2016, Bruce curated an absorbing and well received survey show examining the work of prominent Australian naïve artists – Wide Eyed: Australian and Queensland Naïves featuring major paintings by James Fardoulys, Charles Callins, Sam Byrne and Bill Yaxley.
With the closure of the gallery space in December 2017, the business was rebranded as Bruce Heiser Projects. This reconfiguration led to a leaner assembly of artists, with exhibitions held in less formal surrounds. The business continues its valuation, advisory and research services for clients.
