FROM THE COLLECTION

As an artist and advocate, Elizabeth Bradford both celebrates and mourns the loss of nature and its open spaces. Her paintings serve as elegies for the land as the artist remembers it from her childhood and as it can still be found in undeveloped pockets of forest. Vibrant in color, light, and detailed patterning, Osage Orange, Amherst calls attention to nature’s inherent beauty and to the value of the existing landscape. Bradford hopes her images move viewers so that they halt the demise of such spaces by industrial, commercial, and residential development.
