Artist Sally Bradley in studio
In her paintings, Sally Bradley translates experience into image through paint.  A portrait sitting, model session or period spent in the landscape is essentially experience, a period of time spent observing the world.  Paintings are a record of that experience and a notation of a finite period of time.  As with memory, extraneous information is discarded and the essence of the moment is retained.  Bradley uses paint to explore the joy of observation of the human figure, and the world around us.
