In December, Tristan Koenig held a special off-site project in Sydney of Ry David Bradley’s new two-sided paintings.

This got Bradley thinking about how the postcard still exists, despite its purpose being supplanted by modern forms of communications like social media. Seeing some parallels in the art of […]
