Marc Pradervand

“Pradervands crude atavistic, psychosexual painting has all the vicious porno angst of Bitterkomix. Experiencing his exhibition is like taking a trip to Walter Battiss’ mythical Fook Island only to find its friendly inhabitants have been warped by a stoned Aboriginal shaman into a tortured bestiary. The ragged malevolence of his Zuma portrait is a more astute assault on “Number One” than Brett Murrays’ notorious The Spear.”
