Joe Bradley "Human Form"

This event has ended.

Figuration is the depiction of the human form in space. In Joe Bradley's most recent works the artist inverts the process. Space depicts the human figure, through the contrast of void and presence.
Plato had two theories about art. His more famous one is that art is best when it serves to “mirror” the beauty of the natural world. Certainly Mr. Bradley is no stranger to this concept. Yet the metaphorical possibilities of his monumental silhouetted figures go beyond our human fascination with pictorial depictions. The human form, as an obsession for artists, goes as far back as the pre-historic Lascaux cave paintings, and quite probably even further. These cave images are imbued with a sense of primitive talismanic value.
