New York-based Katherine Bradford is known for her paintings of people in luminous fields of color. She began her career as an artist relatively late in life and has achieved her widest recognition in her seventies, through New York gallery shows at Canada, Sperone Westwater, and Pace. She has exhibited widely at institutions such as MoMA PS1 in New York, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.
Bradford is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant. She has taught at institutions such as the Yale School of Art and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Upcoming shows in 2021 include a solo in New York at Canada, one in Milan at Kaufman Repetto, one in Vermont at the Hall Art Foundation and a two-person show at Harvard University’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.
