Betsy Bradley

1 Sep-1 Oct 2022


Vardaxoglou Gallery is pleased to present Betsy Bradley’s first solo exhibition in London, opening Thursday 1 September, 6-9pm. A text by Hettie Judah will accompany the exhibition.

Midlands-based Betsy Bradley (b. 1992) recently had her first solo institutional exhibition at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham. Bradley’s paintings are characterised by pulsating, vibrant colourful brushstrokes sweeping across stretched fabrics like voile and organza. This exhibition reveals the ways in which painting triggers the unfolding of multiple dimensions on a single surface and pushes the perceptual possibilities of the medium. Bradley’s surfaces, often translucent fabrics, dissolve the distinction between figure and ground and invite the play of light and space.
