SOUTHWEST PAINTER


Brad Price is a romantic, a backpacker, an impressionist, and a lover of high places. Through painting he makes an emotional visit to the scene he is painting. His style emphasizes contrast and bold complementary color. Price attributes much of his development as a painter to his admiration and study of New Mexico‚Äôs early masters. The brush strokes are bold and directional in nature. They set up a rhythmic movement that directs the eye, guiding the viewer through the composition. His paintings are a total experience placed on canvas. According to Price, art is experience and the sharing of experience. It is creating something new and beautiful for the world, and then sharing that moment with others.
