Get to know the artwork of urban contemporary artist Ed Bechervaise otherwise, know as Unwell Bunny, ahead of his first exhibition for 2017, opening on Friday 13 January at Besser Space in Collingwood, Melbourne.
Unwell Bunny’s latest work ‘Super Psychology’, is a study into the American psyche, his body of work takes part over two time periods. The first is from six weeks travelling through New York, LA, San Francisco with observations of American fast food psychology. The second part of the series, back in Melbourne, seeing these works in the studio for a second time with the figurative edge of the female form.
It’s a suggestive dichotomy between the past subconscious experience and the present observational one occurs and takes the viewer into a contemporary lifestyle setting. Whilst still experiencing bursts of subliminal psychology as the American infused imagery punctures the background.
Ed has shown his work in Amsterdam, New York and most recently a solo show ‘Subtuition’ in Paris. With its global sensibility and edgy undertones, Ed’s motivations are to create works that are progressive and disruptive, while still aesthetically accessible taking inspiration from American and European urban and modern neo-cubist painters pushing graphic expressionism forward. A super psychology of self-discovery.
