Jyll Bradley

b.1966, Folkestone, UK. Lives and works in London. 

Jyll Bradley’s practice has always revolved around Light. Her work often looks at the transaction of organic and industrial materials, putting forward a desire to merge different aspects of the self. ‘Graft’ is a gardening term meaning to combine one plant with another. It also means hard work. In this work, Jyll unifies opposing materials – Plexiglass and wood – to create a sculpture that both mirrors her height and reflects the viewer.

Jyll’s collection of soothing watercolours each hold an empty space within them. The blank space at the centre of each work allows for a certain light to come through.
