What we see in Bradford’s surfaces is a feat of duality; a reconciliation of opposing forces at once flashy and subdued, rebellious and conforming. This is not to be underestimated. How often do we see bombastic displays of overpainting, thick and sickly splash and daub masquerading as creative energy? Speaking eloquently without shouting, giving without insisting, emoting without exaggerating, not exhausting the audience with saturation is where serious, and joyful, painting begins.
