Maria Calandra visits the studio of painter Katherine Bradford.
Calandra notes that Bradford's paintings "ask the viewer to let go. They allow for connections to be made between the compelling imagery and space within them freely and without a push from any kind of direct narrative. Like reading a poem that never overtly connotes its subject, the viewer's imagination is as active a participant while observing as Kathy's must have been while making."
Katherine Bradford: New Work will be on view at Edward Thorp Gallery, New York, from April 19 – May 26, 2012.
