We are pleased to present a new edition from Portland, Oregon-based artist James Bradley.

As a series of individual drawings on paper, Health & Hypochondria (2020) are constructed on mailed correspondence from government agencies, financial and medical institutions, and used marketing collateral, (most received during the pandemic). Through these physical markers of time, Bradley depicts items of ritual as 2D objects permiated with representations of interiority and spirituality. They become works of ephemeral nature, amalgamating the symbols of a functionary life to isolated gauges of personal sanity: a held dandelion, a Belle and Sebastian LP, the collected works of John Milton, a cherished cat figurine bought years earlier at Community Thrift in San Francisco, a meditation pillow and mat, a cat asleep in a cardboard box, reading glasses. These drawings are seen individually as prayer, a clarity.

This edition was printed alongside Bradley's exhibition, The World As Willful Misrepresentation, at P.Bibeau (Brooklyn, NY).
