Bradley’s practice depicts a world in which we argue with the past and contemplate its unrealized potential. A world in which ideologies of wholeness and harmony are disrupted by deviance and the taboo. The hollow pleasures of war and violence are recognized as an inherent social impulse, which provides an entry into confronting the past and the ethical mapping of the contemporary. As a reaction to the motivation of the victim, perpetrator, and rescuer his practice contemplates the relationships between religion, race, and power.
Utilizing as material; myth, objects, philosophies, and histories his methods recontextualize and contemplate the possibility of the absolution of guilt and creating empathy through human effort. Through strategies of appropriation, juxtaposition, and projection his methods characteristically involve marginalized techniques, the remaining sediments are later transformed in his practice into what he proposes is a “passive-aggressive landscape”. This area helps situate his practice to engage dark ecological philosophies and American cultural traditions. The schism between how we perceive these landscapes and how objects react 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 the Anthropocene.
