Artist of the Day- Katherine Bradford (click on image to view individually)

Born in NYC in 1942 Katherine Bradford lives in Brooklyn and Brunswick Maine . In 2013 she was appointed Senior Critic in the graduate program at Yale School of Art. She didn’t study art in college. She didn’t begin to show work till 1997! She had opportunity but no interest…until while raising kids…she did! I love this work. I know it seems primitive but it is so evocative of things and shapes I’m drawn to. The fact that the figures are simply painted only helps to gather in the feel of water at night…I started humming my favorite song…Nightswimming by REM almost instantly!
