Bradley Kerl- Blind Arcade

 

BRADLEY KERL

Opening Reception: Friday, January 9th, 2015, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through February 14th, 2015.

 
The paintings and collages in Blind Arcade¬†occupy the psychological space between sincere and impossible. Bradley Kerl’s newest body of work subverts traditional landscapes and still-lifes with the frame of an archway, challenging the veracity of otherwise candid pictures. Through this device, Kerl transforms the viewing process into a precarious exercise, creating scenes just friendly enough to enter.
On days when Bradley isn’t working from his studio/living space north of downtown, he teaches painting at area community colleges and works as a studio assistant. He recently earned his MFA from the University of Houston and has since been significantly involved in the unique culture of emerging contemporary art in Houston.
