"Kunkle proves that less is more with the unbelievable life that he invokes into the figures he paints by using just a few colors on his palette. His combination of gilded surfaces, beautiful yet compelling women, and mysteriously alluring settings make for one masterpiece after another."
"I just like how I feel when I look at one of Brad's paintings. The muted skintones and landscapes contrast beautifully with the movement and pop in the gold leaf he so gracefully uses. His work takes me to a timeless, romantic place where the wind is always blowing and the figures are always swept up."
