Markus Leitsch

Markus Leitsch explores the complex relationship of nature and technology as well as the history of economics. Another important focus is the notion of human creation: what is the source and the motor of creation? What are the consequences? His at times deft and morbid installations, videos and photographs using stuffed animals and explicit sexual imagery are somewhat related to the tradition of the art movement ‘Wiener Aktionismus’, while he develops his very personal adaptation of it.

Sunny Buick

Sunny Buick was born in British Columbia, Canada in a small cabin in the woods. She was then raised in California by a single hippy mother, who always encouraged her creative spirit. Finally arriving in San Francisco at age fifteen after years and years of constant displacement, she finally felt at home. The next year she decided to become a tattoo artist after meeting some influencial misfits. Many years later after finishing college she gained a tattoo apprenticeship with Henry Goldfield and it was in North Beach, not too far from where Lenny Bruce fell out of his hotel window that her career was started. Her work is heavily influenced by tattoo imagery which has become a symbolic language in her work. Sunny started exposing her paintings around the same time as she started tattooing. She has appeared in several art books like Vicious, Delicious, Abitious about female artists in the lowbrow scene, also in Beatsville put out by Gallery Outré. In San Francisco she participated in the Mexican community ritual of making Day of the Dead installations, in museums and galleries including the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. In 2003 she organized a massive group art show and catalog called “Sci-Fi Western”. She’s written for Juxtapoz and several tattoo magazines. She was photographed by the french artists Pierre et Gilles. She currently lives in Paris where she daily finds inspiration and lives out her artistic dreams.
