Mark Bradley-Shoup is well-known regionally as on of the finest painters around. His paintings of industrial structures utilize an unexpectedly warm and vibrant color palette, and in the end they come off feeling surprisingly light and ephemeral. At Easy Lemon, however, I am more interested in hosting residencies in which artists and musicians explore processes, material, or disciplines that are completely new to them; or in this case disciplines which they abandoned many years ago. Although Mark continues to play and record music, his focus has almost exclusively been on visual art over the past decade, particularly now with his increasing teaching schedule as one of the main painting teachers at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga. Mark’s presentations will take on an evolving form that will include visual elements, sound performance, and of course some talks about his work and process. We are so excited to host Mark’s three-day residency here at Easy Lemon, November 15-17.
