Lisa Bradley (born 1951 in Columbus, Ohio) is an American artist who has been exhibiting for over thirty years at galleries and museums in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Paris, Helsinki, Tokyo, Brussels and Dakar.
Her paintings are housed in museum collections in the United States, including the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Delaware Art Museum, Indianapolis Museum of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Farnsworth Art Museum, Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum and New Orleans Museum of Art.
The American artist and art dealer Betty Parsons was a mentor in her early career. The collectors The late Herbert Vogel and Dorothy Vogwel have been mentors of her work, and Bradley’s paintings and drawings from the Vogel collection are currently being exhibited in museums in the United States as part of the Vogel 50/50 collaboration sponsored by the National Gallery of Art.
Currently living and working in New York, where she has been based since the late 1970s, Bradley is known for the dynamic interaction of line, plane and space in her paintings. Having developed an individualized formal vocabulary, the artist achieves an expression of simultaneous movement and stillness. Her painting creates a feeling of suspended time or, as art critic, Carter Ratcliff commented, "a pause between the pulses of some vast and luminous energy." A reproduction of her work appears in the seminal art history text, The Art of Seeing, 3rd through 6th editions, published by Prentice Hall.
