Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Kim Bradley currently lives and work in Baltimore as an artist fulltime. Kim enjoys creating unique paintings incorporating different media to create her artwork. Kims main characters are African women and children from different backgrounds to showcase their beauty.
Artist working in oils, acrylic and clay. I’m interested in how words effect an image and vice versa in art. I’m also applying some of my learnings from poetry - such as letting the work form itself. Although, of course, looking back, every mark, every word has been a decision, conscious or not. Some of the recent work has been about giving in to chance, letting a pot be decorated by fire and smoke in smoke firing.
I have a fascination with rubbing back, abrasion, erosion. Something that has developed with my recent working with oxides and slips on clay.
I’m often inspired by relationships, current situations, things overheard, things misheard.
