Don’t miss Thomas C. Bradley’s new show - opening Friday 4th October!
Opening Friday October 4th at One Grand Gallery (1000 E Burnside Street, Portland, OR)
ABOUT THOMAS C. BRADLEY
Born in Oklahoma, Thomas C. Bradley received his BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art. After 10+ years in the design industry, Thomas began painting in January of 2017. Within a few months he was offered his first solo show, and by June exhibited his first body of work titled ‘Many Paintings of Sound Composition and Inoffensive Material’ in a gallery in New York City.
His work echoes his tastes as a graphic artist. Whether he is utilizing rules of logo construction, reinterpreting a favourite designer’s book cover, or painting advertising flash directly from his clip art library, Thomas’s work perpetually intertwines commercial and fine art.
As ten years worth of pent-up work begin to take shape, Thomas finds his tastes rapidly evolving. He describes his current work as a combination of hardedge abstraction and graphic readymades, rooted in pop art and postmodern sensibilities. Thomas’ sources of inspiration stretch from Baldessari to corporate graphic standards manuals.
Thomas now lives in Portland, Oregon where he runs a multidisciplinary creative studio called Famous Charm with his wife Haley Ann Bradley. He is actively generating new work for his next collection and is not presently represented by an agency or gallery.
