Brad Price has made the western landscape his focus for the past three decades. “It is the tortured beauty of the area,” he says, when asked about his work. “Look at the twisted pines, the crooked cottonwoods, the eroded landscape. The whole place looks incredibly wise, like it could tell you some amazing stories about pain and survival.” The bold brushstrokes and colors in expressionist works by Price are inspired by the Western landscape and its rugged beauty. His work is a rebirth of the sense of style of early Taos painters and the Post-Impressionists. His works in oil are emotive and colorful with strong directional lines that he employs to guide the viewer into the world that he has seen and experienced.
In November, his work appeared in articles in Southwest Art Magazine and he was chosen for the NOAPS Best of America Show. His work has also been featured on the covers of Santa Fe Circle Magazine and the 2012 Santa Fe Visitor’s Guide. A native Oklahoman, his works were exhibited at the Oklahoma State Capital during the Oklahoma Bi-centennial. His work has been chosen for by the Taos Art Museum’s art auction and gala. Price has an annual one man show at Meyer Gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, and he participates in Small Works, Great Wondersat the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
