HUMAN, ALL TOO HUMAN : A JOE BRADLEY COMPLEX

Pop Art meets  Greco-Roman sculpture meets The Bangles’ video of pop hit “Walk like an Egyptian.”Pop Art meets Greco-Roman sculpture meets The Bangles’ video of pop hit “Walk like an Egyptian.”

"There has never been much evidence of work in Joe Bradley`s art, and therein resides much of its signification. The individual units of Bradley`s paintings have always been literally blank and, more significantly, militantly haphazard. With his works` scabrous, cheap surfaces; his "casualness" concerning proper leveling and hanging; and his ambivalent (if not antagonistic) attitude toward the conventionally stretched canvas, Bradley falls somewhere between a heroic practitioner of "grunge art" and a loafer."
