Bunch’s paintings, which he would call imaginative realism and/or surrealism,
usually depict women juxtaposed with images from nature and dreams. He seeks to
produce interesting, thought-provoking, and beautiful paintings that have
meaning to him, but also hopes the viewer can find personal significance in
them as well. Equally important is the continuous improvement of the
artist’s skills and technique with each new painting.
His artistic influences include many painters - great artists from the past,
like Michelangelo, da Vinci, Dali, van Gogh, and Magritte, to contemporary
painters such as Nicola Verlato, Olivia, Richard Corben, and Frank Frazetta,
Troy Bunch paints with oils on stretched linen or board. He almost always works
from his studio using a combination of natural and artificial light.
