There’s something about the work of local artist Bradley Widman that I find completely mesmerizing. His oil paintings inspired by the arts and crafts movement are simply captivating. The artist uses earth tones to depict his “his unique body of work conveying spiritually and psychologically charged allegory.” Moreover, his simplistic style is ultimately far more complex than it looks. Widman is able to capture the imagination in a way that perplexes the viewer. Images that would typically be characterized as motionless, are actually alive with emotion. It’s as if the characters in his works were “up to something” just before being caught by the brushstrokes of the artist.
Bradley has recently be juried into The Arts and Craftsmen Guild.
