ABOUT

Bradly Gunn is a Seattle-based visual artist. He was raised in Southern Washington amongst the tall pines and green meadows of the Columbia Gorge. An enthusiasm for natural and constructed environments led him to study architecture, sculpture, and painting. His current practice delves into the process of interpreting the palimpsestic layers of our past.

 

Working in a great diversity of mediums he has made portraits, abstract works, assemblage, large and small paintings, sculptures, performances, text works and installations. To date he has received regional design awards, earned his inclusion on competitive artists rosters, successfully completed multiple public art projects, and is a founding director of the Seattle Demo Project.

 

His work continues to develop between the spatial considerations of two-dimensional works and the visual structure of architectural installations. Often incorporating found objects and decommissioned spaces, his expressive and richly textured works capitalize on the empowering sense of discovery.
