Beni Bischof

Swiss artist Beni Bischof does not take himself serious, a sense of humor and a humble understanding of the world around him flows effortlessly between paintings, drawings, collages, prints, sculpture and installation. Bischof’s ability to allow each work to shine independently is rooted in his confidence to possibly make mistakes and his ability to approach each day with an honest approach to his varied process of art making. Bischof encourages us to look into the absurdity of our desires. Bricked Castles and Handicap Cars follow our intuition to objectify the flawed ambition to acquire maximum beauty, strength and power. In other works magazine pages are covered with grotesque abstract marks masking the beauty of the subject while offering an alternative channel for a ritualistic performance. In a painting two shapes representing heads confront one another celebrating the banality of our day-to-day confrontations. Enjoy more Bischof after the jump…

    This guy is tugging at the unconscious, minus the cirque de soleil flamboyance of the surrealists
