Cathleen (“CB”) Bradley
I love a creative challenge. As a mixed media artist, I pride myself in re-purposing …”up-cycling” familiar discarded objects into something new. In my hands, discarded objects, whether century-old barn timber, hardware with an aged patina or vintage graphics get second lives. Though my heart wonders about their origins, my mind twists their fate.
My visual-kinesthetic approach to my art is obvious. I paint, layer, scrape, scratch, sand, tear, cut, sew, burnish and rearrange —all to give my thoughts imagery, to tell new stories. Ultimately, my constructions, assemblages, sewn work or paintings evoke feelings of something familiar yet offer one-of-a-kind whimsy and design.
