JOHN SCOTT "BUNNY" MIXED MEDIA ON PAPER
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 a Rock'n'Roll lifestyle, his body of work displays a combination of machismo, anxiety and rebellion.
Scott is self-trained and typically uses an assortment of readily available materials in his work.
In "Bunny", a paradigm from his oeuvre, he uses colored chalks, enamel and acrylic to depict his iconic half-human half-rabbit figure.
Like Keith Harring, Scott is devoted to using 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.
