Art Love: Elizabeth Bradford
Did you survive the Black Friday / Cyber Monday madness?
A recent addition to the amazing artists at Hidell Brooks Gallery has captured my attention.
Enjoy getting to know the talented Elizabeth Bradford.
“elizabeth bradford is a native carolinian, with deep roots in the rural landscape. her work often centers on images drawn from her rural community and her family’s century farm in north mecklenburg county. In recent years she has used her passion for backpacking as inspiration for large scale paintings of the wild.
bradford studied art at randolph macon woman’s college, the universities of north carolina, and at davidson college. she is represented in corporate and private collections all over the united states. she was included in the us state department’s art in embassies program, which places representative work by american artists in embassies around the world.
bradford was chosen as the featured artist for north carolina’s first statewide women’s conference. she has had many solo exhibitions, including shows at the university of north carolina at charlotte, davidson college, hood college, the blowing rock museum and the cameron art museum.
her work focuses on intricate formal patterns found in nature, and on the experience of color. It serves as a call to action to preserve and protect the natural world and expresses a deep reverence for wild places. currently her medium is acrylic on canvas. though representational, her paintings have a strong connection to the traditions of abstraction. bradford’s paintings reveal a continuing investigation of landscape and the notion of place.”
