"In the deepest sense every moment is perfect and eternal."
Lisa Bradley

"Each of Lisa Bradley's new canvases is utterly still, yet the stillness feels transient-a pause between the pulses of some vast and luminous energy. Entranced, vision follows the glow of her colors into a contemplative state far from the usual topics of art criticism. Why talk about facture, tone, scale and all the rest of it when the attention is absorbed, suspended, in a realm of sheer light? From this sheerness, this immediacy, a Bradley canvas takes a self-sufficiency which vision claims for itself. Why talk when we can simply look?"
Carter Ratcliff, The Unity of Being, 1998

"Each separate painting proffers a new resolution to the paradox of life itself, in which time's swift passage is but a still multi-milli-second in the history of the universe".
April Kingsley, 1993

"Ultimate reality is precisely what Bradley seeks to show in her work, which is about the consciousness that she knows to be real. In an extremely perceptive introduction to a catalogue of her paintings shown at E.M. Donohue Gallery in 1989, Ronny Cohen wrote that: These paintings, filled as they are with what might be described as inner purpose derive their particularly animated appearance from Bradley's needs and desires to use art as a means of getting to certain basic truths. As a group, these paintings speak to and about what might be termed a transcendent order of experience. The mode of discourse is uncompromisingly pure and astonishingly poetic."
Townsend Ludington, 2003
