MARK BRADFORD : THE PISTOL THAT WHISTLES




New Works by Mark Bradford

Mark Bradford uses painting, collage, sculpture, film and audio performance. He examines the ever-changing conditions and spontaneous networks that characterise urban societies, and in particular that of his home city, Los Angeles.

Bradford’s large-scale, multi-layered collaged paintings incorporate materials such as remnants of billboard posters, magazines and newsprint found in the vicinity of his studio. These materials, which he describes as having ‘an inbuilt history’ are used to create dense, visually complex compositions that are ostensibly abstract but referential in content.

Mark Bradford was born in 1961 in Los Angeles, where he lives and works. He has exhibited widely, including group shows such as the São Paulo Biennial (2006), Whitney Biennial, New York (2006), the Carnegie International, Pittsburgh (2008) and Media City Seoul (2010).
