Artist Spotlight 2023 – Bradley Weyandt

About Twinkler Forever, Sparkler Forever:

The featured images are from a recent solo exhibition at Skylab Gallery. The exhibition, Twinkler Forever, Sparkler Forever, presented new, towering textile work by artist, Bradley Weyandt. Gauzy depictions of archetypal bad boy blood suckers were humbly knit by the artist, then tautly unfurled across fields of nails. Meticulously crafted of reflective Mylar, the intricate textiles conjure the enigmatic essence of immortal beings, like an Edward or an Angel, evoking an enchanting and seductive power, beckoning one to fall prey to a world where shadows dance with desire and darkness holds an irresistible allure.
