Sikkema Jenkins &\; Co. is pleased to announce an exhibit ion of new works by Mark Bradford on view from October 27 – December 15. Th e show will be Bradford’s third solo exhibition at the gallery.
The exhibition will feature Bradford’s large-scale paintings\, recognize d for a complex abstraction of form and intricate layering. Using collage a nd décollage\, Bradford preserves the physical characteristics of his source material\, exposing the tension between precise painterly gestur es and the three-dimensionality of the found objects. Many canvases resembl e roadmaps or aerial views—topographies of the city’s physical landscape as well as its social\, economic\, and cultural character.

Mark Bradford was born in 1961 in Los Angeles\, where he continues to live and w ork. He received both his BFA (1995) and his MFA (1997) from the California Institute for the Arts. He is the recipient of numerous awards including a MacArthur Fellowship Award (2009)\, the Bucksbaum Award for his contributi on to the Whitney biennial in 2006\, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundati on Award (2003).
