JOHN SCOTT "BUNNY MAN" MIXED MEDIA ON PAPER, 1994
John Scott, who came to prominence in Toronto in the 1980's has one of the most distinctive aesthetics in contemporary Canadian art.
Influenced by both social activism and Rock'n'Roll, his body of work displays a combination of machismo, anxiety and rebellion.
The "Bunny Man", is a paradigm from his oeuvre, with his signature character who seems both defiant and vulnerable. The figure is central in a seemingly chaotic or even violent setting. Is that a government building behind him with a fighter plane in the sky.
Similar to Keith Harring, John Scott uses his signature stylized characters to explore and depict themes and narratives.
"Bunny" is a fantastic example of Scott's work realized with a dynamic and moody palette.
