Jyll Bradley’s installations, drawings, and light box works express a deeply personal engagement with identity and place. Light is an important protagonist in her practice, and she talks of using it to ”bring things into the present”. Bradley’s work increasingly engages with architecture, site and community. Through unlikely pairings of materials and traditions, her installations invite reflection upon dualities at the core of self and modern life. Bradley’s unique works on paper, which she terms ‘light drawings’, are made through the manipulation of light from an old photocopier, itself a form of basic camera.
