Mark Bradford -- AOD

"Grace & Measure," detail, 2005
Mixed media collage on canvas

"Method Man," 2004, Paper on canvas

The Los Angeles artist speaks about his process:
"My practice is d├ęcollage and collage at the same time. D├ęcollage, I take it away; collage, I immediately add it right back. It’s almost like a rhythm. I’m a builder and a demolisher. I put up so I can tear down. I’m a speculator and a developer. In archaeological terms, I excavate and I build at the same time."
