Braddon has earned a reputation for an astute understanding and sensitivity to materials that reveal a minimal aesthetic that is equally rich in content. Proficient when he employs any chosen material, this most recent work, interrogates a dangerously exciting and new method of inflating steel. This performative process developed whilst researching for his PhD gives the work a renewed freedom, where it reveals a delicate dialogue between control and chance that has been aptly described as Action Sculpture.

Highlights of Braddon’s career include participation in Sculpture by the Sea seven times, a finalist in the McClelland Sculpture Survey and Award, the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, ISF Korea and numerous significant Public Art commissions that demonstrate a thorough understanding of materiality and site.
