Description

Joe Bradley’s drawings have the immediacy of a quick doodle but the sensitivity of a reverently executed work. This apparent contradiction is established by what the artist calls the "shoddiness" of his materials but the care taken in deploying them. This profile on a folded piece of paper suggests naive images of Jesus, although Bradley is careful to imply contexts and meanings only ambiguously and obliquely.

About Joe Bradley

Joe Bradley (American, b. 1975) is a painter, draughtsman, sculptor, and mixed media artist. Having transitioned from landscapes to abstraction, he is best known for chalky, anthropomorphic shapes, reminiscent of the Art Brut movement. Reductive and nonfigurative, his works convey a sense of familiarity and depth, despite their lighthearted subject matter, and have been exhibited internationally.
