Katherine Bradford layers lustrous washes of paint in meditative works where loosely rendered human figures are immersed in blocks of color. Fleshy, soft tones are juxtaposed and overlapped to create sumptuous, pulsating textures. Bradford’s singular figures do not convey a feeling of isolation; instead they are activated by a mystic glow emanating from within. The artist received her MFA from State University of New York, Purchase, NY (US) in 1987 and her BA from Bryn Mawr College, PA (US). Bradford’s solo exhibition Swimmers and Lifeguards is currently on view at Kaufman Repetto, Milan (IT).
