Art enables expression and Bunce favours the therapeutic element of his creations as he explains the concept of his first collection: ‘I felt I’d lost my way… [I] had become frightened of the physical act of drawing and painting’. Yet Bunce’s work is so masterfully delivered that one would assume this collection to be the product of years constant reworking and experimentation. The 1999 movement of Stuckism which favours figurative painting over conceptual art was also a source of Bunce’s inspiration:
On paper, they are just animals, but Bunce’s excitingly original collection crackles with a new danger, marketed irresistibly as ‘Beatrix Potter meets Tarantino’. In his Retrospective collection, Bunce uses a combination of fine art and mixed media, colour and print to present a world of contrasts. A fashion designer turned artist, Bunce created his radical pieces after facing disillusionment with modern day society.
