“Right now in the series I am working on I am exploring ideas about death, magic, and storytelling in America. My paintings depict figures against the backdrop of a stark quintessentially American landscape or darkened rooms that conjure the mysterious.
Whether it be heightened euphoria, a darkened sense of foreboding, sublime twilight, or an interpretation of the miraculous, real, or imagined, I seek to analyze the borderland between the old world of myth and the modern world of science.
The anachronistic space where the inexplicable and the fable are in discord with contemporary ideologies is a frontier that is narrowing in modern America.”~ Cayetano G. Valenzuela

Bradley Platz’ traditional oil paintings address the increasingly complex issues of permanence in the modern age. With a nod to the classical subject manner, the marble statues represent a timeless, yet forgotten beauty—a silent reminder of our mortality and the passing of time. The environments that these stolid statues inhabit range from the empty softness of raw linen and atmospheric perspective, to recent work depicting the over-development and deconstruction of place—and space—on the edge of continent and future.
