Mark Bradford. My Head Became a Rock

Los Angeles artist Mark Bradford is well known for his large-scale grid-like abstract paintings collaging found materials and paint. My Head Became a Rock, the artist inaugural exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, Zürich (2014), is celebrated in this special limited-edition over scaled artist book. Elegantly presented in a black linen-bound hardcover, the double-sided Z-fold features Bradford s latest work including his 10-part series entitled Floor Scrapers. Blurring the boundaries between artist studio and outer world, Bradford, who works in South Los Angeles, incorporates found materials that have a social and material history into his work. Bradford received the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2009 and exhibits extensively in museums
nationally and internationally. This engaging artist book has a tactile, handcrafted quality that is a pleasure to hold in one hand.
