Icons of the West | Scottsdale, AZ
Altamira Fine Art Scottsdale is pleased to present the first exhibition for Bradford Overton at our Arizona location.
Join us for a reception Thursday, November 15th from 6:30-9pm during the Gold Palette "Contemporary Focus" ArtWalk on Main Street. The artist will be in attendance.
In this body of work tiny western archetypes loom large. Richly colored, vintage toys float on simple gray backgrounds. Shadows move across a gray plain and highly detailed cowboys and indians run across what we can only imagine to be mesas and canyons in pursuit of, or fleeing from, a scene which we cannot see.
Relying on raw skill, color, composition, and the inherent beauty of the objects he's painted, Overton's paintings call on the playfulness and sense of humor of the viewer, to be the player, playing. They also draw on Overton's earliest inspirations, his childhood fantasies of running freely through the landscape with his greatest heroes, the indians and cowboys who made the west what it is and who still enchant our minds with memories of what was.
