Terry Bradley at Wyecliffe



We are very excited to announce that we are adding the magnificent artwork of Terry Bradley to our collection at the Wyecliffe Gallery.


Terry's bold paintings are full of drama and mysterious characters. A Wyecliffe favourite entitled 'Justice' combines the iconic superhero with Bradley's signature tattoos and dark shadows. 

Dubbed 'The new Peter Howson', Terry Bradley was born in Belfast in 1965. He grew up on the Shankill Road and so his mother tried to keep him inside away from the “Troubles”. Throughout his childhood his was particularly interested in reading ‘The Adventures of Tin Tin’, and through his art we can see that he was influenced by these drawings.
 
Bradley first began painting in order to calm his nerves, he found himself in his element when trying to depict his subject on paper. His early work was inspired by the years that he lived and worked in Belfast. His distinctive line drawings and atmospheric paintings capture the mood of many of Dublin and Belfast‘s most memorable nightclubs and bars. His work also features strong women, mainly from the modelling and fashion industry.

 
The two sides of his artwork reflect the conflict in Bradley’s personality, with his self-confessed manic, dark side at odds with calmer more gentle periods. Bradley had established himself in the art world from an early age and his work now features in collections all across the world; he has a range of limited editions and originals and he also creates hand-embellished editions, which are truly stunning as well as unique.

Bradley's work is exhibited not only in the UK and Ireland but also in Spain and the US. His collectors include U2 singer Bono and Boyzone's Ronan Keating and he has collaborated with brands such as Harley Davidson and Nokia.

A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
