JOE BRADLEY (b. 1975)
Joe Bradley’s protean oeuvre is built on a diverse, curated visual language. Though always squarely in the realm of painting, Bradley’s series vary wildly in formal and aesthetic qualities. From the “modular” shaped canvases of pristine color fields tapped from the minimal canon, to rudimentary line drawings on found cardboard and post-its, to saturated, unprimed canvases, unceremoniously stitched together, Bradley’s evocations of exalted and disposable culture lend equivalency to the discrete elements as they champion the materials of their making.
OSCAR TUAZON (b. 1975)
Engaging different methods of construction, Oscar Tuazon frequently uses wood, concrete, glass, steel, and piping as materials to create his structures and installations. His works have roots in minimalism, conceptualism, and architecture, and have a direct relationship with both the site in which they are presented, as well as with their viewer, often through physical engagement.
MICHAEL WILLIAMS (b. 1978)
Michael Williams (born 1978 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania) is an American painter. Having spent 15 years living in New York, he currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2000 with a BFA in sculpture. His richly layered paintings incorporate a range of media, imagery, painting styles and techniques. Often juxtaposing figurative and abstract forms, while employing a range of styles, Williams’s works consistently examine the nature, boundaries of, and tensions within the painted surface.
