ALBRIGHT-KNOX ART GALLERY/D.A.P.

Joe Bradley

Foreword by Janne Sirén. Text by Cathleen Chaffee, Dan Nadel, Kim Conaty. Interview by Carroll Dunham.

"Mother and Child" (2016) is reproduced from 'Joe Bradley.'

A midcareer survey of paintings by the popular stylistic chameleon

American painter Joe Bradley has distinguished himself among the artists of his generation with his mutable approach to art-making. With minimal fuss, Bradley works in series, picking up and discarding styles and oscillating between abstraction and figuration as it suits him. “A retrospective of his work would look like a group show,” wrote dealer and collector Kenny Schachter. Bradley’s first large-scale North American exhibition supports this observation: he is shown moving from expressionistic canvases that record the detritus and spontaneity of the studio environment to subtly figurative send-ups of Minimalist painting, then to starkly primitivistic glyphs drawn in grease pencil on unprimed canvas, followed by modular aluminum sculptures paired with textual directives.
This richly illustrated catalog, published to accompany Bradley’s midcareer survey organized by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, presents the full range of Bradley’s unique approach to language, abstraction and the evolutions of style. Joe Bradley includes reproductions of all works in the exhibition—some 30 paintings, 8 sculptures and 30 drawings—as well as an introductory essay by exhibition organizer Cathleen Chaffee, new scholarly essays, an interview with the artist and an exhibition history.


One of the standard-bearers of the polarizing, hard-to-categorize group of contemporary painters that includes such artists as Mark Grotjahn, Nicole Eisenmann, Richard Aldrich, Josh Smith and Michael Williams, Joe Bradley (born 1975) is widely known for his bright abstract paintings and glyph-like drawings.

FROM THE BOOK
Excerpt from "Joe Bradley: Use the Right Tool for the Job" by Cathleen Chaffee

Throughout his career, Joe Bradley has inspired many a double take—“This is a Joe Bradley?” viewers have exclaimed in museums, art fairs, galleries, and collectors’ homes. Even dedicated fans of his work have inevitably faltered at one or another of his forking paths over the past twenty years, while Bradley, on the other hand, shifts gears without pause: from starkly minimalist to gestural abstract paintings with stops in between, from discomfiting assemblage sculptures to boldly graphic silkscreens, and from jagged, sometimes comic drawings to obdurate geometric sculptures.
