The Mark Bradford Experience

We recently had the pleasure of shooting the contemporary artist out of South Central LA, Mark Bradford with Resource. We shot footage that will be going onto a web site based around his upcoming exhibition that will be traveling but gets first showing at The Wexner Center at Ohio State University.

He's considered one of the top contemporary American artists today and did not disappoint. I typically meet most artists with a bit of skepticism with how much of today's art is more based around what kind of critical interest can be gained by using shock or mystery - sort of like film festivals - but that's another topic.

Mark Bradford is an absolutely stunning man, intelligent and someone whose work you need to gain his insight and eye first before being able to fully grasp. It was an energizing experience. I'm very glad to have been a part of it. Thanks to Jill Brandt and Al Laus for joining me in helping out!
