Ashley Bickerton

Born in Barbados, and  raised  and  educated in Ghana, Guyana, England, Hawaii, the  Balearic  Islands  and California,  Bickerton, as  Paul  Theroux in The  Guardian sharply  observed, has  become a ‘connoisseur of  not   belonging.’ After  having   lived  and   worked in  New  York  City  for  12  years,  however, being a passionate surfer  as well, he  settled on  the  island  of Bali, where he  is living and  working for the  past  24 years  now.  Although Bickerton certainly never completely  leaves  his outsider’s perspective, this  solo exhibition in the  beautiful and  inspiring  island  of Bali, known for its rituals  and  spiritual  ceremonies, its thriving  handicraft community but  also  for its stark  contrasts and  intense touristic usage, foregrounds Ashley Bickerton’s strong relationship with  tropical and  island  culture, with  Bali, and  with  Indonesia’s contemporary art  scene.

Ashley  Bickerton (1959,  Barbados) graduated  from   the   California Institute  of  the   Arts  in  1982  and continued his education in the  Independent Studies Program at the  Whitney  Museum of American Art, New  York. A seminal figure  in the  East Village scene of the  mid ’80s in New  York, Bickerton was  one of the  original  members of a group of artists  known as ‘Neo-Geo,’ and  to  this  day  remains an  influential figure  with  a younger generation of artists.  His work  can  be  found in numerous museum collections worldwide, including the  MoMA, New  York  and  the  TATE, London. Last year  Ashley Bickerton had  his first  major UK retrospective titled  Ornamental Hysteria,   compiling more  than 50  works   from   four decades at  the  Newport Gallery  in London. The  artist  lives and  works  in Bali, Indonesia.
