Patrick Bradley (American)
Patrick Bradley’s mixed-media works on paper are organic in nature. They start with marks, gestures and colors that develop into a balance, a rightness. One is immediately struck by what seems a disarming simplicity of composition, color and juxtaposition of formal elements. However, his works resonate on repeated looking, revealing that they are not simple at all. Their surfaces are layered with information and vibrations from multiple veils of color, form, and line.
Patrick Bradley was a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in the 1970’s.
