Bradley seamlessly merges the disparate traditions of painting’s history and consumer graphics to develop abstracted ‘figures’ which are uncannily archetypal. In Wolf, four brown canvases marred with scatological splatters function as a reductive stand in for the ravenous and beastly. Paring down pictorial representation to its most diminutive form Bradley encapsulates the essence of character and narrative, raising the logo-istic shorthand of information transaction to the eminence of high art appreciation.
