Bali-based artist Ashley Bickerton (born 1959) rose to prominence in the early 1980s as part of New York’s East Village art scene with his vibrant abstract works critiquing consumer culture and the commodification of the art object. Alongside Jeff Koons, Meyer Vaisman and Peter Halley, Bickerton pioneered what was called the “Neo-Geo” movement with his unconventional paintings devoid of Expressionist brushstrokes.Bickerton reminds us that we live with and are dominated by logos, a link shared with the tribal societies he references in his work, where power symbols matter. Here he demonstrates the good/bad ethos of logs: Bad – indicating guns, sharks, snakes, rats, scorpions, bombs, disease, poison and Good – dolphins, palms, swimming, No smoking.
