Mark Bradford @ Sikkema Jenkins & Co

Hailing from Los Angeles, Mark Bradford's new solo show at Sikkema Jenkins & Co stands up and out among the art sea that is Chelsea. Bradford first came to my attention at the 2004 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art, where again he stood out among the rest. I really enjoy how painterly these feel while using no paint. Not for nothing, but I stopped by three separate times to view this show! For more info check out the Sikkema Jenkins & Co website.
