Katherine Bradford awes critics with her deft mark making, direct capture of painted emotion and the materiality of feeling — the distinct voice of her presence rendered in gesture. Bradford builds forms through thin washes of broad brushstrokes, inventing layered colorfields and figures who are almost deity-like in space, alive in the world of creation. Emerging with a glow, they exist as community and as composition.
New Diver is a series of hand-embellished prints exploring situational nuance, producing wide-ranging effects by applying bands of color in various sections of this sparse composition. The results imply many riffs on the solitary diver’s relationship to the horizon, with each print’s overall tone defined by differences in their dynamic atmosphere - whether it’s the color of the sky or the activity in its subtle brush strokes is up to the viewer to receive as they will.
