Mark Bradford

Bradford is an American artist well known for creating large scale collages using everyday signs in the community such as posters and traffic symbols. These latest trials that I have created are based around his inspirations and techniques. The part that interests me about his work is that he doesn’t see himself as an artist more as a archaeologist. He layers his work until he feels it necessary to stop and then strips it back using objects like sanders and hammers revealing the bones of the work.

Abstract – collage 3

This is the last of the collage trials created in this style. It is the last part of this collage process. It is the remains of the cut out squiggles from the previous collage. I love this set of three but I will wait until I have done all trials for this section of my project before scaling the ones I like the best as final pieces.
