Daniela Bradley is a sculptor and painter from the Northern Rivers of NSW.
She trained as an illustrator and Graphic Designer at a young age and later in Visual Arts at Lismore TAFE.
Her work is representational, often heavy with narrative, an occasional dose of humour with a preference for contemporary Australiana. Daniela Bradley work has a predominate narrative on environment within an Australian landscape. From tragedy to irreverence, the social-political to comedic her recent works are allegories of conservation, progress and the effect of colonization on the endemic landscape.
“I see in symbols and metaphors and read the world around me as such. Communicating in imagery is my mechanism for processing ideas into a language I can then put forward to the interpretation of the individual.” She says!
Daniela Bradley has had solo and group shows at four Australian Regional Galleries – she has won local and regional art competitions and been a selected finalist for various national art prizes.
Bradley generally paints in oils, often mounted in unique frames and/or formats.
Her recent striking sculptures are predominately in bronze and timber.
She has been represented by JEFA Gallery in Byron Bay since 2018, and we believe with encouragement and support, she could easily go on to become one of Australia’s most activist artists – and be instrumental in putting the world to rights!
