In 2007 he had a one-man exhibition in York Minister of the Stations of the Cross.

Harvey Bradley

‘My oil paintings are largely personal responses to the symbolism and visual energy suggested by particular biblical passages. Typically my large canvases fit well into churches and galleries. Framed editions of these are printed in various sizes, using archival pigment on German etching paper. These suit domestic settings and smaller public spaces.
‘Complementing these, my porcelain pots explore contemporary themes, using flowing lines and a full sense of volume, and are suited to practical use in ecclesiastical and domestic settings. Past church commissions include chalices, wall crosses, candle stands, baptismal jugs and bowls, and tiles to surround a baptismal pool.’ www.harveybradley.co.uk
