Essays by Margrit Brehm. Introduction by Agnes Husslein-Arco and Ralph Melcher.
Philippe Bradshaw draws as freely from the great masterpieces of art history as he does from the essential ideas of Conceptual, Minimal, or Pop Art, pirating at will from the bounteous domains of the art world. Bradshaw produced the first of his Chain Curtains, in which colored links form chains of images combined with the medium of video in the late 1990s. Yet, as shown in this book, his playful approach to the fruits of tradition differs distinctly from the conceptual appropriation of works of art as practiced by Elaine Sturtevant or Sherrie Levine. Bradshaw describes the process of motif transposition in his works as "bastardization." Color and disciplined chaos ensue.
