Mark Bradford

Sikkema Jenkins & Co
530 West 22nd Street
January 17–February 23

A former hairdresser from Los Angeles, Mark Bradford seems to be causing considerable stir. His work resembles much worked over advertising surfaces one finds in subways and in out of the way urban spaces. The kind of space worked over by bored teenagers, smoothing foil from cigarette packages, then thumbing circles, lines, exposing layers of others markings. From a distance they resemble “aerial views of contorting, mutating, and decaying cities whose tiny, intricate street grids can no longer maintain their structural integrity against unknown, epic forces (overcrowding, corruption, disease?).”
