An artist like no other. This lavishly illustrated career survey of the work of Ashley Bickerton provides unprecedented insight into the artistâs life and art. The artistâs move, in 1993, to the surferâs paradise of Bali, Indonesia, occasioned the development of a richly hued aesthetic that has found expression in diverse paintings, sculptures, and photographs. Combining the fantastically exotic with the troublingly nightmarish, Bickertonâs evocative work continues to evolve. Throughout this eclectic monograph, the artistâs own commentary is interwoven with text from additional contributors, including essays by fellow artist Jake Chapman, novelist Nick McDonell, art historian Abigail Solomon-Godeau, curator Dominic Molon, and the artistâs father, the noted linguist-anthropologist Derek Bickerton.
