Artist David Michael Bradley at J. Bangle Gallery Through Oct. 4
J. Bangle Silk Stocking Gallery will feature world landscape oil paintings and classical stoneware pottery of professional artist David Michael Bradley through October 4.
Bradley mixes up the artist techniques and style of Van Gogh and Picasso by using texture as the main attraction, with bright colors and deep contrast and the selection of chosen subject matter in his oil paintings. “By my own unique style, I oil paint using thick, rough texture as close to the background to a 3-D effect showing every brush stroke with extreme detail,” says Bradley, who usually takes two to three months to complete a work. The final result is the eye-popping texture, in which people want to actually touch the painting itself.
His stoneware pottery is classified as a “antique collectable.” Each piece has the U.S. Department logo and a copyrighted registered patent ink stamp with the artist’s signature, and is wheel thrown and hand sanded for wall strength for a better fit for the glaze application.
J. Bangle Silk Stocking Gallery is located at 1124 25th Street. For more information, call 409-763-6161.
