Jyll Bradley in conversation with Paul Hobson, 20 October 2016, 7pm
Please join us for the conversation between Jyll Bradley and Paul Hobson on Thursday, 20 October at 7pm.
Jyll Bradley’s work expresses a uniquely personal engagement with identity and place through installation, painting, drawing and recently film. Often pairing unlikely materials and traditions, her works invite reflection upon the dualities at the core of the self and of modern life. Currency,marks a turning point in Bradley’s practice, expanding from her recent acclaimed public realm commissions into a new and distinctive body of work for the gallery. These new works demonstrate the artist’s manifold engagement with the processes of drawing and mark making, as she problematises the singularity of ‘currency’, or a single system of beliefs, instead privileging process, the personal and the potential for error as a catalyst for creative evolution.
