Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center in Asheville Offers Works by Cory Bradley

Flood Gallery Fine Arts Center in Asheville, NC, is presenting an exhibit of works by Cory Bradley, on view through July 27, 2013. A reception will be held on June 1, from 6-9pm.

When Cory Bradley creates a new painting, he entertains whatever it is that interests him. In this way, he finds validity in his work. Bradley says “though it holds weight in the end, audience interpretation has no part in the conception of my work. Because of this, the viewer is left to draw his or her own conclusions based on specific elements. This often leaves the viewer pondering and therefore sparks conversation, and the responses are what I’m able to carry on to the next project.”

Bradley’s work is continuously amusing and presents with many avenues of perspective. Each road doesn’t have to take the same direction, but must converge to the same point. He states: “this point is the thesis and the sole reason for any work of mine to exist.” Bradley’s primary aim is to target underlying emotion into representational impressions which do not need commentary specific to any language or culture in order to leave a lasting impression.

Bradley was born in Columbia, SC, and now works and lives in New York City, NY. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Ringling School of Art and Design. Bradley’s work was first exhibited at the Flood Gallery in 2006, and he has shown work since in New York.
