A TRAVELLING INCARCERATION.  Immobile inside the train, seeing immobile-things slip by.  What is happening? Nothing is moving inside or outside the train.’  ( Certeau, 1984, The Practice of Everyday Life) ..........An ongoing body of work exploring the Phenomenology and history of train travel. The paintings explore how train journeys transform our experiences and memories of place and form part of a collaboration with writer and poet, Sarah Hayden.

'Postcard-like in format, Bradley’s Illegible Frontiers are miniaturized epics. Vastnesses pulled down to tiny formats, they give us expanses condensed. Hanging like ultra-high-res thumbnails, these Lilliputian landscapes are dense with sensual data, and littler than seems possible.' (Sarah Hayden, 2017)
