Titled Spoiled Foot (2016), it’s one of the Los Angeles-based Bradford’s most ambitious and arresting works to date. Visitors are invited to walk around and touch its rough red and black surface, which is covered in indentations resembling lesions.Like much of Bradford’s work, the installation addresses the discrimination and violence against black, gay, and other marginalized bodies. But in a space that represents the United States—where prejudice towards minorities is often bolstered by federal legislation—the political message of his practice is powerfully amplified." -nytimes.com

ralphgtaylor photos downloadIs that a major Mark Bradford on the cover of the Bonhams Contemporary Art catalogue? Yes it is. From 2009 'Dream Deferral' is a fabulous example by arguably the most important artist at work in America today. Fresh from his towering achievement representing America at the Venice Biennale this work has great depth and texture and shows all of his key themes. Once in the collection of the late, great, lamented Baroness Marion Lambert it's large in scale but not so big as to preclude a domestic collector. It's a privilege to have it on the wall, it's well worth trekking through the furnace that is London to take a look. Apologies to my non-art friends, you've got about a week of this so hold your noses... @bonhamscontemporary @bonhams1793 #bonhams #markbradford #venice #venicebiennale #bradford #art #auction #painting #stingel #kossoff #Wool #forg #banksy #warhol #contemporaryart #contemporary
