I’ve been thinking about Katherine Bradford and her swimmer paintings a lot the past few days. Below are some images from a booth at NADA (during Art Basel, 2016). I may not remember what I did yesterday, but I always remember exactly where I fell for an artist and their work.
At the end of June, I listened to a great podcast with Katherine Bradford. She is as charming as she is talented.
Below are some of the swimmer images, for which Bradford is known.
There is something about the distance between her subjects, together but always just a little bit separated, that reminds me of how we are all interacting in the time of COVID.
The night sky and water make me think of evenings I’ve spent this summer out on a dock in Seattle’s Lake Union.
