Ivy Brown Gallery presents Frank Bradfield’s Evolution

Saturday, November 10th, 2018

Frank Bradfield’s first solo art show in New York City is an exploration into the evolution of man. Evolution is nature’s answer for survival. Evolution is nature’s way of resolution. Resolution is sudden and born of human intervention. The results of human intervention and the possibilities of what might evolve within species is the central theme that Mr. Bradfield has captured in his works. As Marty Stouffer, renowned wildlife spokesperson said, “Nature can turn a songbird into a hunter”.

Evolution is happening all around the world today. Due to human intervention, species of all populations have migrated out of their natural habitats into new environments and adaptations have occurred as a result.  African Rock and Burmese pythons are now found thriving in the Florida Everglades. European wild hogs and African warthogs now dominate areas of Texas.  As the earth continues to be disrupted, indigenous creatures must adapt to their new surroundings or perish.

“Evolution is very hard not to notice; the thought of scales having evolved into feathers on the legs of a turkey excites me, consequently can you imagine a 20 foot T-Rex with feathers?” – Frank Bradfield

ARTful in collaboration with BarkerandMay – David Hicks Exhibition.

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

ARTful are excited to be collaborating with BarkerandMay to bring the works of talented artist David Hicks to Vintners Place, London.

David Hicks is an artist who uses abstraction to explore a language of line, form and emotive image. Mostly working in oils and collage David uses methods of layering and of contemplative responses to the inner workings of the painting as it builds. He works either on one painting at a time or in in a series with a similar medium and this exploration allows an internal dialogue to emerge. Often listening to music or with a story or personal image in mind his response is a natural instinctive way of painting. He will allow some paintings to rest for months before painting over them creating layers and depth. Fine Papers are used in his work as well as bold brush strokes and lines. In some paintings landscapes may appear as recognisable subjects Illuminated by the personal response within the viewer.

There will be a Private View on 07.11.2018 between 6.30 – 8.30pm. If you would like to attend or receive any information about the artist please contact | .

This piece is titled ‘Strangers’ Original Mixed Media on Canvas 112 cm x 142 cm
