Curatorial insightBradfield’s Colours of the Coast works are inspired by the landscape of Geraldton’s coast and the art and craft of print-making. His palette emerges from the distinctive colours of the region and the printed application from his enquiries into a range of techniques and materials. These works focus directly on the zone where land meets ocean in Geraldton. Colours of the coast 2 features a river threading along the coast, a sign of the significance of water in this rain-deprived part of the country. (AGWA 2010)
