Grasshopper: Daily Life (Project Room)

Bruno David is pleased to present an exhibition by self-taught New Jersey artist known as GRASSHOPPER in the project room.

These never-shown works from the private collection of Paul Ochman follow in the tradition of outsider artists Adolf Wölfli, Henry Darger and Bodys Isek Kingelez, inviting us to imagine a vignette of the artist’s daily life. “Languages need to start somewhere,” he said and invented his own. By developing a bilingual dictionary in which this new language can be seen through the dialogue of his characters, the artist exemplifies his own methodical and driven creative process.

GRASSHOPPER started his art practice in his 50’s. Many of his drawings are directly reflective of his daily life at the time, from observing people interacting in an office (“Antilios”), to being hungry (“Food”), to traveling (“Transportation”), and translating these in his distinctive works.
