A selection of Brads works are on display in our backspace gallery.
Brad’s distinctive style of painting moves far beyond just the aesthetically pleasing. There is a confidence to admire, whereby Brad takes a sentiment (idea) beyond the standard narrative of a portrait. The drama of his work plays out under different lighting. Brad has caught the attention of serious collectors.
“The sketch is done and I can see where this is one is going – so the process begins. I layer the colours forming a gradient then cut back into each colour with the next and then repeat this process. The layers build, sharp edges emerge and form develops. This goes on for days before I start working on the details, which get smaller and smaller and smaller. As I am applying the final touches, I decide to name her following the theme of places in the sky.
