This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Adam Bradley studied at George Mason University, most notably under Professor Margarida Kendall. Even as a student he began to develop a strong reputation for his skill in depicting unusual figurative themes using found objects such as metal, wood, car parts and such other refuse, and put it together with wire or string to assemble striking and gestural figures.

"I wanted to make something that was contemporary, that was about now, Bradley explains. "It is not about the tradition of figurative sculpture. I am more concerned with bringing history into now. I try to bring back the gesture. So the found object is my way of making it mine. It is more contemporary than cast bronze."

As an undergraduate, he kept making drawings of isolated figures with minimal delineation of space until Kendall posed a question to him: ""Can you make a figure and have the actual gallery space around it?"" In his attempt to address the issue, he moved from painting to sculpture, and a whole body of work was born.

Bradley first solo show was at the Fraser Gallery in Washington, DC in 1999. In 2000 he received his Masters in Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Arts in Baltimore.

The artist resides in Virginia, near Washington, DC.
