Bradford Graves

Bradford Graves je večino svojega izjemno obsežnega opusa ustvaril v kamnu, ki ga je za središče svojega ustvarjalnega raziskovanja izbral zaradi njegove - po kiparjevem mnenju - mistične povezanosti z zemljo. V svojih delih je modernistično formo povezoval z elementi starodavnih kultur (predvsem antičnih mitov) in dobršno mero pozornosti posvečal vpetosti svojih organskih skulptur v njihovo neposredno okolje (npr. cikel This Mirror can Crack Stone). Velik del umetnikovega opusa se nahaja v Gravesovem parku skulptur v New Yorku (Bradford Graves Sculpture Park).
