Bradford Kessler

Mutation and premonition are central to the base experience of American artist Bradford Kessler who’s allegorical works have been described as a  “diabolic symphony of shifting childhood imagination and twisted Darwinian algorithms.” Entrenched in this web are personal traces from Kessler's upbringing in the midwestern Bible Belt.


His wide-range of works include sharply shaped canvases, customized weapons, and biomorphic figurative sculptures; all of which share a uniquely sinister vision that calls upon the animality of human nature to address conflicting impulses toward rules of behavior, civilization, technological advancements, and institutionalized theologies.


Kessler’s work has exhibited internationally, including solo shows at Valentin, Paris; Ashes/Ashes, Los Angeles;  and 247365, New York; and group shows at MonCheri, Brussels; Interstate Projects, Brooklyn; 63rd-77th Steps, Bari; Springsteen, Baltimore; and Witte de With, Rotterdam. His work has been reviewed in Mousse, Modern Painters, CURA, Flash Art, and Dis Magazine.
