Artist Jyll Bradley on her retrospective Airports for the Lights, Shadows and Particles at The Bluecoat, Liverpool – Liverpool Arts – Entertainment – Liverpool Daily Post.

Opens on Friday 25 Feb 2011

GALLERY visitors in Liverpool will know Jyll Bradley best for her Fragrant project based on the city’s botanical collection.

The Folkestone-born artist is returning this week to prepare a retrospective at The Bluecoat – revealing many other sides to her work.

Airports for the Lights, Shadows and Particles presents her 20-year career, from her emergence on the art scene alongside Young British Artist contemporaries, such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, to a brand new piece commissioned especially for the show.

It will include a work that was exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery during her residency at Liverpool’s botanical collection following a life long interest in plants.
