4th Exhibition Of Bruce Knox - Violent Art

4th Exhibition Of Bruce Knox
PRESS RELEASE JUNE 2005

THE 4TH SOLO EXHIBITION BY BRUCE STIRLING JOHN KNOX, 'PANDORA'S MEAT' IS THE MOST VIOLENT ART NEW ZEALAND HAS SEEN. A ONE NIGHT ONLY EVENT AT AUCKLAND CENTRAL'S 47 HIGH STREET, FROM 6PM, NEW ZEALAND. THESE ALL NEW WORKS, FROM THIS PROLIFIC ARTIST, ARE A NATURAL EVOLUTION OF HIS DISTINCTIVE STYLE, BOTH POWERFUL AND DIRECT. OFFENSIVE AS ANY AWFUL FACT OF LIFE, YET SUBJECT MATTER SIMPLY TOO CONTROVERSIAL FOR MOST COMMERCIAL SPONSORS.

A PROFESSIONAL 2D ANIMATOR FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS (IN NEW ZEALAND AND JAPAN) BRUCE IS WELL AWARE OF THRESHOLD OF SOCIAL ACCEPTANCE, AND HAS KEPT HIS ART SEPARATE FROM THE MAINSTREAM BUSINESS OF "COMPROMISE"; AFFORDING HIM ABSOLUTE FREE RANGE INTEGRITY WITHIN HIS ART. PULLING NO PUNCHES. SOON AFTER 'PANDORA'S MEAT' BRUCE IS MOVING TO GERMANY TO EXPLORE THE UNDER BELLY OF THE REVERED BERLIN ART SCENE.

"JUST SO YOU KNOW, HR GIGER WILL NOT BE SENT YOUR WEBSITE ADDRESS, AT LEAST NOT BY ME. I WONDER WHO MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT HE WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SEEING THIS, AND WHAT THEY MUST THINK OF GIGER. I WILL, HOWEVER, TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT NATALIE PORTMAN'S MANAGEMENT WILL GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXAMINE YOUR WEBSITE, SINCE THEY SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF YOUR EXISTENCE.AND YES, I DO THINK YOU ARE A PSYCHO, AND NO, THERE IS NO MORE............" LES BARANY, AGENT FOR H.R. GIGER.

"WELL, YOU MADE ME FEEL PHYSICALLY SICK, IF THAT WAS YOUR INTENTION." KARL WILLS, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, YUKFOO ANIMATION

ATTACHED IS THE ADVERT FOR THE EXHIBITION 'PANDORA'S MEAT'. FOR PAST WORKS AND OTHER PROJECTS OF BRUCE STIRLING JOHN KNOX, PLEASE REFER TO HIS WEB-SITE.
