Opening Wednesday 5th November, 1pm-3pm.
David Bradley paints portraits with a recurring characteristic; the emphasised nose which has become his own signature mark. David’s work is a diary-like chronicle of his observations of the people and situations that surround him, subtitling these everyday scenes by painting them. Every image the artist creates has personal significance, whether it is stimulated by a particular mood, reflection, or thwarting moment; emphasising the idea that everyday life happens alongside his art.
For his first solo exhibition, David is also working on a series of landscape paintings of the city. We associate landscape painting with the picturesque but with the emphasis on the city, and the forcefulness of keeping such places maintained, echoes some of the tension we see in David’s portraits.
