Bruce Cascia paints in a photorealistic style, oils mostly, and occasionally acrylics. His initial images were of solitary diners, truck-stops, and motorcycles all placed in the dramatic vistas of the American Southwest, calling to mind the freedom of the open road. Cascia’s bike paintings were included in the opening of Chicago’s Field Museum’s “Art of the Motorcycle” Show. His “Dogs in Pick-ups” series, inspired by small town main street, grew out of his association with the Boulder Humane Society. The artist’s “Illinois Flatlands” series, evoking a more contemplative mood, was inspired by Central Illinois commutes.
Cascia’s work is also included in a number of corporate art collections, such as Oscar- Mayer, DDB Needham Worldwide, and Pearlnesco, as well as the private collections of Jay Leno, Dennis Hopper, and Peter Fonda. The artist often donates work to various charities such as the Boulder Humane Society, Children’s Memorial Hospital and the Glenview Historical Society
