Bradley Hankey New – Los Angeles’ – Work
Bradley Hankey, originally form Oregon, resides in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. As he produced some new work here is the second article, after Los Angeles Paintings. His paintings emerge from photographs from his smartphone.
“I review my many images to determine which ones will become paintings. The images that become paintings are often places I see regularly – the silhouette of palm trees from the freeway; the downtown skyline; the mountains and the ocean. Sometimes I see something so intensely gorgeous that I immediately know I have to paint it – the sunrise reflecting on the wing of a plane; the city lights from a downtown bar; a piece of plastic shining in the sun.” he explains.
In this series of paintings has the same colours as the older ones, the same theme – Los Angeles, yet they seem more mild, more delicate. I love Bradley’s paintings, especially the ones with palm trees, there are also some here as well. This series is exhibited in Skidmore Contemporary Art until the 17th of October. Enjoy.
