This print by Ashley Bickerton depicts a snake with the face of a man rising up from the earth. The tropical plant-life that bursts forth from his head would be considered benign in any other context and adds a lightness to an otherwise somber image. Representative of the artist's darker side, this work is a sharp contrast to the brightly colored sculptures and paintings for which he is known.

Ashley Bickerton came into the New York scene as part of the Neo-Geo "Fab Four" made up of himself, Peter Halley, Meyer Vaisman, and Jeff Koons. During this time, he was best known for his "abstract logos," works that critiqued the commodification of art objects. After moving to Bali in 1993, his career and aesthetic shifted. Though the colorful nature of his works and the materials from which they are constructed are directly influenced by his exotic locale, Bickerton's works are globally reflective. He keeps an open channel of communication and awareness between his remote studio and the contemporary art scene, resulting in works that speak to both global issues and his personal contemplations.Read Less
