I'm not trying to illustrate a point or a position. I have nothing in particular to say … When I work I feel like I'm fumbling around for something and I just get my fingers on it for a second.
—Joe Bradley

Gagosian is pleased to announce "Forty Four Drawings," an exhibition of new works by Joe Bradley at Eden Rock in St. Barths. The show features forty-four charcoal and graphite drawings, all in yellow frames.
