b. 1942, New York, USA

Lives and works in New York

Katherine Bradford’s paintings work with faux-­naivety to evoke a vulnerability and otherworldliness. Her work often plumbs venerable themes, working in the lineage of Cezanne or Renoir. There is nothing grandiose about her work; there is instead a distinctly human and emotive quality. Bradford’s scenes have often employed dream-­‐‑ like attributes, with shimmering stars, outer space or deepest waters. The figures therefore inhabit a space both seductive and threatening all at once.
