Artist of the Week: Gary Bradley

My favorite works by Gary Bradley are his expressive abstract paintings that take joy in the act of mark making.  His works give a strong impression of loving the materiality of the paint itself as much as loving color. I traded works for the painting below where he has taken up experimenting with painting between layers of clear resin.

See more work by Gary Bradley at his portfolio website here where he also states his creative philosophy:

Art for Art Sake… some artists seek to ‘brand’ themselves, and or produce ‘artwork’ that is easily is duplicated and saleable –keeping their best work and true art to themselves. Each piece of art sold from my site is not a branded form of artwork produced en-masse. It is a truly original work created without regard to sale. Some pieces will develop in hours while others take years. I do not distinguish. They take as long as required.
