    It’s easy to forget what natural-born moralists American artists are until you encounter someone like Ashley Bickerton. His work doesn’t just wag a finger or propose reform. It offers a worldview that is basically an end-of-the-world view, beyond solution, beyond revulsion, blissed-out on the terrible wonder of it all…
    Some of Mr. Bickerton’s recent work is almost as aggressively outré; some is just spooky. A series of mixed-media pieces done in collaboration with the Singapore Tyler Print Institute is in the latter category: images of green-skinned creatures rising from an oil-slicked sea littered with cans and bottles.
