|Artist Statement:||As an abstract artist, I have set out to explore my personal vision through non-objective forms and figurative allusions. My art evolves out of personal inspiration and vision.
By consciously creating the unconscious, I allow the viewer to explore my inner being. I like to challenge the viewer to explore the recesses of their own unconscious.
Whether you want to call my art mystical, spiritual, or magical, I like to think of my art as mining the energy of intuitive emotion.
Through spatial tensions and non-objective forms, I entice the viewer to explore my secret world. I feel my kind of art is the most honest and intimate form of communication.
- Mary Lea Bradley
American abstract artist Mary Lea Bradley focuses primarily on painting in her extremely expressive body of work. Bradley’s Art is immediately striking.
Her paintings are characterized by a sense of mystery that invites the viewer in. The paintings transport you from reality to a vibrant, mystical world, where you are the story teller, creating and interpreting your own stories.
She’s the kind of artist anyone can talk with. Extremely approachable. Excited about her newest work but unpretentious about her artistic flair and sophisticated eye.
It is imagery filled with an intensity of atmosphere that makes the viewer an insider. Her pieces attract; you want to know more, where it started, where it’s going. The viewer’s curiosity makes this artist and her work take flight.
Bradley currently lives and works in Southern California. Her work can be found in public and private collections throughout the United States and Internationally in Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Sweden, Finland and Spain.
