Judging For Awards:
Elizabeth Bradford is a native Carolinian, with deep roots in the rural landscape. Her work often centers on images drawn from
her rural community and her family’s century farm in north Mecklenburg County. In recent years she has used her passion for backpacking and exploring nature as inspiration for large scale paintings of the
wild. Bradford studied art at Randolph Macon Woman’s College, the Universities of North Carolina, and at Davidson College, and recently completed a residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and VCCA’s outpost in France, Moulin à Nef. Bradford is represented in corporate and private collections all over the United States. She was included in the US State Department’s Art in Embassies Program, which places representative work by American artists in embassies around the world.
In 2006 Bradford was chosen as the featured artist for North Carolina’s first statewide Women’s Conference. She has had many solo exhibitions, including shows at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Davidson College and Hood College. Her work focuses on intricate formal patterns found in nature, and on the experience of color. Currently her medium is acrylic on canvas. Though representational, her paintings have a strong connection to the traditions of abstraction. Bradford’s paintings reveal a continuing investigation of landscape and the notion of place.
