Katherine Bradford / water drinker

A reflection on Katherine Bradford's 'water drinker'


moma / Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925

In 1912, in several European cities, a handful of artists—Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Francis Picabia, and Robert Delaunay—presented the first abstract pictures to the public. Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork, tracing the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. The exhibition brings together many of the most influential works in abstraction’s early history and covers a wide range of artistic production, including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, films, photographs, sound poems, atonal music, and non-narrative dance, to draw a cross-media portrait of these watershed years. http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1291

I am interested in geometric abstraction that reflects our vulnerability and uncertainty in the world. I've always been interested in the line, how it contains, defines and suggests. Color is very important in my work. It allows the somewhat familiar forms to become personal and subtly eccentric.

My longtime interest in early 20th century abstraction and the notion of the "cosmic" merges with a California/pop sensibility. What develops is a way for abstract painting to still be engaging.
