Bradley Foisset (B.1979) graduated with a Bachelor of Fine arts (Painting, with a First Class Honours, Summa Cum Laude, Presidents Award, McNally Award Fine Arts Representative) from LASALLE College of the Arts, in partnership with Goldsmiths, College of London in 2013. He was also a recipient of the Winston Oh Travel Award 2012 (Mekong Delta, Vietnam). Growing up in downtown Buffalo he graduated from The Buffalo Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts (Photography 1997) Formally trained in the field of painting, Bradley Foisset has further explored other mediums such as performance, video, photography and collage in developing his practice. In his works, he combines the narrative potential of images and the associative power of language within the parameters in a work of art. He creates engaging and sometimes provocativedemonstrations of surrealism in the anthropocene. As a contemporary artist, Bradley draws inspiration from nature, history and sediments, which are later transformed in his practice into what he proposes is a “passive-aggressive landscape”. Coining the term “passive aggressive landscape”, he enables a utility to comprehend the enduring and successful aesthetics within the framework of object orientated ontology. To approach and dismantle this attitude his works include many mediums aiding in the diagnoses that we are passive-aggressive in both visual framing of aesthetics and subsequent thinking as one assembles the knowledge of the objects within the perceived, lived and/or imagined landscapes.
His goal is not to scrutinize yet disassemble such conditions in so doing he redefines concepts on nature and landscape alike. This area helps situate his practice to engage dark ecological philosophies and American cultural traditions. In his approach, he encountered a sense of cognitive dissonance that disrupted the traditional ways of sight and interpretation. The schism between how humans perceive these landscape and how objects reacts to them is fraught with suspicion. To relieve this strain, Bradley creates new discourse by combining intimate personal histories against the larger historical records. Tracing his desires we are supplied with means of understanding successful and lasting aesthetics, and the ability to forecast subsequent changes within these landscapes in the anthropocene. Bradley Foisset has participated in various group exhibitions such as "Peculiar Textures"(Gallerie Steph ARTSPACE@Helutrans 2015), “Cam Biasa”(Art One 21, 2014), and Asia’s largest art platform with "Singapore Art Stage 2013"(Singapore Institute of Contemporary Art, Marina Bay Sands) .Recently, he has developed an art program with HSBC to mentor in risk youth in a three year programme.
