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.
Swimmers in Fog is an edition of archival pigment prints that blurs the line between foreground and background, displaying airy beings that could be sitting poolside, wading into the sea at the beach, or breast stroking through the air all in the same scene. It seems as though we’ve stumbled into someone’s dream with no sense of time or space, only the purple mist and the water that is everywhere and nowhere and all that’s left to do is swim.
Katherine Bradford has a forthcoming 2022 retrospective at The Portland Museum of Art (Maine). Previous solo exhibitions have been held at CANADA (New York), Campoli Presti (London, Paris), Adams and Ollman (Portland, OR), Galerie Haverkampf (Berlin), The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (Texas), and Galleria Monica De Cardenas (Milan) among others.
