Bradley continues a longstanding investigation of the 21st century painting. Bradley advances his provocations of what is meant by 'image-making' using a hybrid of digital and painting technologies. Constructed in a manner that almost confuses viewers of the boundaries between to two, Bradley, the alchemist, forges a new materiality. Rich hues, often unobtainable by anything but the chromatic intensity of a screen, or of paint itself, materialise in a process Bradley has slowly developed over many years of investigation.

In today’s screen-centric world, a conflation between the private and global occurs. Bradley’s pressing concern is how stories from the digital generation will be passed down through time. Bradley studied New Media Video and Internet Art in the early 2000s, believing it was the medium of his generation. Due to concerns about its longevity and accessibility, he shifted his focus to painting as a medium that does not require power or software and will not become outdated or inaccessible through upgrades.
Bradley received his Master of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. Since then, he has exhibited widely both at galleries and museum in Australia, as well as in exhibitions and fairs in New York, London, Milan, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, and Palm Beach. Bradley is represented by Sullivan+Strumpf in Australia and The Hole in New York City. His work is in the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria, Herning Museum of Contemporary Art, Lyon Housemuseum, and numerous private collections around the world.
