Joe Bradley Biography

With a style that appears regressive, primitive and roughly executed, Joe Bradley’s paintings possess a child-like component that the artist describes as 'intentional shoddiness.' The subtle colour variations and surface texturing inject the paintings with a distinct character which, when hung together, emanate a strong energetic force. Bradley graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1999. He now lives and works in New York, where he is well known for his monochromatic canvas paintings that depict figurations of humans, animals, places and objects through experimentation with Colour Field and Minimalism.

Bradley’s first solo exhibition Duckling Fantasy showed at Almine Rech Gallery, Paris, in 2011. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, acquired his painting Strut that same year. He has since had multiple solo exhibitions, including Lotus Beaters at Gavin Brown, New York, in 2013 and The SS Potlicker and Friends at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zürich, in 2014.
