  • This series of ten new works on linen entitled 'Blood & Marble' explores the idea of classical decay in the modern age.  These painstakingly detailed paintings feature portrait busts offset by elements of life; hints of blood, an interrogative gaze, scarred flesh and perched birds that all add a subtle color and life force to the cold marble subjects.
    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.
