Ashley Bickerton – Susie

The girls name "Susie" served as a trademark for Ashley Bickerton's work, he showed during the 1980s in New York until moving to Bali. His intriguing painterly and sculptural pieces derive from commodity aesthetics, marketing language and corporate culture. At the time they were shown in the context of the seminal group of artists – often referred to as "Neo-Geo" – consisting of Bickerton, Halley, Koons and Vaisman at Sonnabend gallery. 

Ashley Bickerton – Susie is the first monographic close reading of Bickerton's influential early work. Contributions by Lauren O'Neill-Butler, Fredi Fischli, Abigail Solomon-Godeau, Bob Nickas, Niels Olsen, Thomas Lawson and John C. Welchmann offer a wide range of critical views on his practice.
