Gajah Gallery is proud to present Bali based American artist Ashley Bickerton's first solo show at the gallery, on view at 140 Hill Street, #01-08, Old Hill Police Station from 26 April - 25 May 2014.
This exhibition marks a new direction for the American master of philosophical funk: large (two meters plus) paintings on canvas of vignettes from the tropical apocalypse, executed with a fine, finished polish. In the recent past Bickerton has created elaborate assemblages that approached deep-relief sculpture, high-resolution digital photographs overlaid with found objects and heavy impasto. Yet the artist has always been first and foremost a painter: With the new series he makes a conscious, almost defiant effort to re-establish himself as a master painter in the grand tradition.
