Opening reception October 6, 2017 from 5 to 9 PM during Art Loop This exhibition represents Bradley's long-standing interest in geology, alchemy, and the "performative process" of painting. After research of the Soudan Iron Mine near Tower, Minnesota, Bradley began her Soudan Series in the fall of 2015. The depth of mineral imagery from the mine forms the basis for Bradley's new works and serves as a visual metaphor for earth's geological and biological mysteries. Bradley's alchemical process is activated by the physical activity of pouring, sanding, drawing, building and subtracting into, and onto, the surfaces in many layers. Transparent film and silk are used as foundations for the works and correlate to the underlying theme of "ancient" water. The studio environment tempers the interaction of diverse materials, paint mediums, and paint as they blend into realized images. Questions of history, origin, meaning and authenticity emerge through the final paintings, provoking doubt, perception, and uncertainty.
