Bruce Brenneise: The Gates of Thoth

The Gates of Thoth

Bruce Brenneise (BFA 2005)

"The Gates of Thoth" is inspired by my love of travel and mythology. Use of imaginative realism allows me to conceptualize places that exist somewhere between fact and fiction. Thoth was the Egyptian god of writing, magic, the moon, and wisdom--among other things. Here we arrive at his secret oasis and the great library within, hidden deep in the desert. Only the most devoted seekers of knowledge might ever find it.
