The Big Deal – A Day At The Modern To See Mark Bradford: End Papers

by Gila Espinoza 4 Mar 2020 1:31 AM

Spring is in the air and what better time to visit the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s new exhibition, “Mark Bradford: End Papers.” The pivotal works in this exhibition are primarily constructed from end papers, the key material and fundamental motif the artist employed early in his career and has returned to periodically over the past two decades. Bradford learned to use end papers as a hairdresser in his mother’s beauty salon in South Los Angeles. These small sheets of translucent paper protect hair from overheating in the process of using curlers to create permanent waves. Part painting and part collage, the colored End Paper works feature grids that contain various hues that pulsate across the surface. Many works are monumental in scale.
