Biography from Aucocisco Galleries:
Katherine Bradford was born in New York City in 1942, graduated from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania, and received an MFA from SUNY Purchase College in New York.

In the 70's, Katherine Bradford was living year round in Maine and began to make paintings that were abstract and took their inspiration from nature.  Gradually she introduced images and symbols into her work so that at present her paintings exist in the area between abstraction and representation.  Typically they show invented scenes, many of them of ritualistic gatherings involving boats, swimmers and animals. Bradford hopes to capture the spirit of a quest, of community, and conversely, of quiet isolation. Bradford comtemplates the play between intimate and heroic, mark and image, familiar and otherworldly and hope that the results come across as intuitive, sometimes absurd, humorous comments on the poetics of life and of the natural world.  Writers have variously described her paintings as "blunt," "ruggedly made," and "primitive."

Katherine Bradford lives and works in New York City and spends summers in Brunswick, Maine.  She considers herself a long-standing member of both the Williamsburg Brooklyn and Maine art communities.  One person shows include New York City, Brooklyn, Chicago, Boston, California and Maine.  She has participated in exhibits at P.S. 1, the Brooklyn Museum and the Portland Museum.  Awards have come from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2005) and the Pollock Krasner Foundation (2000).

Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art in America, The Brooklyn Rail, and The New Yorker.  A catalog was published for my spring 2007 one person show at at a gallery in New York.  This contains a review by John Yau, which appeared in the June 2007 issue of The Brooklyn Rail and an interview with Chris Martin and Peter Acheson, which appeared in the May 2007 issue of the Brooklyn Rail.

Museums that hold her works are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Portland Museum, Farnsworth Museum, Bowdoin College Art Museum, Bates College Art Museum, and the Smith College Art Museum.
