Bracewell's art writing focuses on detailed descriptions of artworks, exploring connections between the visual arts, pop music, modern iconography and subcultures, whilst appraising the vision and ideas of individual artists and the relation of their work to its broader cultural context.

 

He has written extensively for museums and galleries on artists including Gilbert & George, Richard Hamilton, Bridget Riley, Wolfgang Tillmans, John Stezaker, Glenn Brown and Damien Hirst.

 

Together, the texts read as a history of the UK and British art from 1959 to the present day.
