We are proud to have collaborated with Katherine Bradford to create Seaside, 1 Woman, 2 Men, a series of 30 gouache on pigment print works. Palimpsest like, the series was made in her studio layering gouache atop a base print, obscuring and transforming the original image. Three figures stand and two hold hands. Horizon lines and swim trunks complete the scene of self-contained reflection and quietude — a placid mutability. Or are they waiting for something? It is spring of 2020, when considering figures in enclosed spaces, individual ecosystems, and the balance between dislocation and connectivity feels especially poignant. In a 2019 interview with Artspace, Bradford provided insight into her ongoing exploration of dynamic, noting her intention is to celebrate "who we are, how we fit in, how we fit in together visually, how we all stand next to each other, and there are quite a lot of options for how to look and be with one another. I'm interested in the community."
Katherine Bradford has mounted solo exhibitions at Campoli Presti (Paris and London), The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (Fort Worth, TX), Galleria Monica De Cardenas (Milan), Sperone Westwater (New York), CANADA (New York), Adams and Ollman (Portland, OR), and the Bowdoin College Museum of Art (Brunswick, ME), among others. Selected group shows include Pace Gallery (New York), CANADA (New York, NY), Brand New Gallery (Milan), Venus Over LA (Los Angeles), The Journal Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), and Harper's Books (East Hampton, NY). Her work is included in public collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, NY), and Portland Museum (Portland, ME) among many others. Bradford has received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, Guggenheim Fellowship, Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and American Academy of Arts and Letters Award. She lives and works in New York City.
