"Art has always been for me a form of communication. The technique, the skill, and process are part of the vocabulary an artist uses. The result of a successful work is an artful dialog that will stand the test of time."
Don Bradshaw's work has always had a strong sense of place, influenced by the color and landscape shapes from where he lived and traveled. From the southern states to Arizona, California, and Oregon, they all have offered him a unique perspective on the patterns and contours of the earth. The natural blending of overlying colors--a spark of a distant light or figure, the fading line of a horizon--are all landscape elements that give him the ideas, the germinal moment for work, be it a landscape or an abstract.
In recent years painting in plein air has proved to be a strong influence on his work, providing him with new tools he can bring to his studio work. It doesn't matter if it is a landscape from a field sketch, photograph, or memory--it gives him a different, fresh eye on color and composition.
Known early in his career for his large and vibrant monoprints, and as a fine art lithographer, Bradshaw has been working as an artist for twenty years. Born in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1961, he grew up on the outskirts of the city amidst the contrasting desert and farmlands. He attended Arizona State University and then Abilene Christian University, where he received a B.F.A. in painting and printmaking.
