paintings by b.flora October 1st-31st, 2018 at Motherfools in Madison, Wi “I wanted to make art that encouraged divestment from the viewer’s preconceptions, but that’s not really my job. Instead, I make art that is cathartic and supports my own emotional evolution. To that end, this became a series of paintings about healing the self before trying to help others.”
“Art should be about making promises, and then never breaking them. Of course, that’s never quite how it goes and so making art is also about the sweeping up of life’s broken pieces.”

Artist Listening Session

(..it’s like an artist talk, but opposite.)
The public is invited to discuss new paintings by Bradley Flora during a community critique of the show facilitated by the artist on October 14th, 2018, from 7-9pm at Motherfools, 1101 Williamson Street Madison, WI.

Free gift for all participants (while supplies last).

The show titled simply paintings by b.flora runs from October 1st-31st during normal cafe hours. The large acrylic paintings document a process of healing trauma through subtle figurative storytelling, symbolic landscapes, and expressive mark-making.
