subjects stand as compromised martyrs, moments frozen in time.
Pacifists, they were once observers and are now the eternally observed.
Stolid, cold marble with fixed emotion, they bear the changing seasons
and cycles of time uncelebrated, unobtrusive but exposed. They are
effigies from a lost age, relics of a classical system and now they
stand as monuments to modern decay. These are our gods, our flawed
icons, our higher aspirations of self, whose cold marble bears the
weight of time more slowly than the flesh, but nevertheless suffer as we
suffer and bleed as we bleed.
Bradley Platz’ intricate oil paintings
deal with the alternating nature of worship in the modern age. Using
classical symbolic imagery from old world traditions and transposing
subtle hints of modernity, his work might best be described as
tarnished elegance. Ever present also are certain whimsical and
subtle symbols that carry the viewer through his body of work as a
reader through a story, or a craft on the sea.
