“I wanted to make art that encouraged divestment from the viewer’s preconceptions, but that’s not really my job. Instead, I make art that is cathartic and supports my own emotional evolution. To that end, this became a series of paintings about healing the self before trying to help others.”

“Art should be about making promises, and then never breaking them. Of course, that’s never quite how it goes and so making art is also about the sweeping up of life’s broken pieces.”

The public is invited to discuss new paintings by Bradley Flora during the Artist Listen on October 14th.
