Crafting abstract paintings from fragments of the urban environment – permanent-wave end papers, billboard paper, posters, newsprint – Mark Bradford has built a body of work that is richly layered in both material and meaning.

The MacArthur Award-winning artist’s seductive works reinvigorate abstraction with social awareness: often resembling aerial views, they subtly map the patterns of class, race, gender, and sexuality that structure American life, especially life in Bradford’s own South Central Los Angeles neighborhood.
