BACK AND FORWARD
Opening Friday February 8th, 6-9pm
Continues until Sunday Dec 17th
Unwell Bunny / Ed Bechervaise presents a retrospective back catalog of older and recent work in 'back and forward' showing a progression from street to gallery setting over a number of years.
Emerging from the Adelaide 90's graffiti, Ed has chipped away making a name for himself in the urban contemporary art scene in Melbourne and further abroad showing work in Amsterdam, New York and Paris.
Ed studied studio arts in Adelaide and graphic and conceptual study in Melbourne. Over the years of practice his work has moved into a figurative and abstract sensibility, observing and deconstructing still life, figurative and facial portraiture, landscapes, and subconscious memory. Through bold striking and juxtaposing colour, Ed captures his observations with emotive feeling, creating compositions that generate a sense of nostalgia, and fluid memory.
In this body of work Ed hopes to recreate these memories through installation, and spacial curation. Showing works from multiple themed shows over the years, that link together to become one longer broader narrative. Ed demonstrates influence, observation, and change through time. A collection of experiences that are a summery of seeing the world through fragments of passion about place, person, environment, and feeling.
