A Logic All Its Own

There's been lots of chat about Katherine Bradford's show at Edward Thorp for excellent reason, and I feel lucky to have seen it before it closed. Below, three images: a conflagration of paint and subject, immersed in a private logic of formation that brings to this mind, the magic of counting, marking and revisiting a canvas.

Katherine Bradford: two ways to demarcate a space in parenthesis of color

Who doesn't count? Who wouldn't count their way through a painting?

One of many examples of the touch of a loaded brush doing two things at once: demarcating form, and evolving atmosphere

Heading back home down Fulton St. in Bed-Stuy: the door to Bedford Avenue Family Daycare.
Marks on a surface: not as interior as Bradford's, but the placement is a joy.
