"Art Paine's Turquoise"
San Francisco artist Kay Bradner zooms in for close-ups of unfurled sails of many colours. Representational becomes abstract in these oil paintings done on aluminium panels. The surface adds light and dimension to the compositions that almost appear to be back-lit. Bradner paints that which she loves, and the sea and its shore hold many of the scenes that are most important to her. Her experience as a printmaker allow Bradner to use a diversity of techniques in her paintings.
