COLLAGE & MIXED MEDIA ARTIST
Bradley Foisset graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting, with a First Class Honours, Summa Cum Laude, Presidents Award) from LASALLE College of the Arts, in partnership with Goldsmiths, University of London in 2013. He was also a recipient of the Winston Oh Travel Award 2012 (Mekong Delta, Vietnam). Growing up in downtown Buffalo he graduated from The Buffalo Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts (Photography 1997).
In his works, he combines the narrative potential of images and the associative power of language within the parameters in a work of art. As a contemporary artist, Bradley draws inspiration from nature, history and sediments, which are later transformed in his practice into what he proposes is a “passive-aggressive landscape”. He creates engaging and sometimes provocative demonstrations of surrealism in the Anthropocene. Tracing his desires we are supplied with means of understanding successful and lasting aesthetics, and the ability to forecast subsequent changes within these landscapes in the Anthropocene. His process considers our emotional responses to the ends of nature, civilization and life cycles. This area situates his practice to approach dark ecological philosophies and American cultural traditions. Combining intimate personal histories against the larger historical records gives way to Bradley’s new cultural discourse.
