Precious, Magical Power Of Feminine Energies In Oil, Silver And Gold Paintings – Brad Kunkle

Based in upstate New York, Brad Kunkle is a talented artist who has become internationally known for his unique use of gold and silver leaf in contemporary oil painting. His minimal palette is inspired by early European masters and the haunting quality of antique photographs and daguerreotypes. His themes explore the power of feminine energies as guides for seeking enlightenment in symbiosis with the natural world. – ‘The surreal nature of the genuine gold and silver leaf was a missing element in my work that I had been waiting to discover… I was working on a project with a client that wanted his office walls gilded in copper, so I leafed all of the walls in copper. As I stood in front of them, it just hit me. This was the missing element in my work. The way light reacted and the way my movements interacted with the leaf was completely beguiling, and I wanted to create paintings that allowed people to feel this same surreal sense of space and time.’
