BlueWhale + Cafemode proudly present “The Crunch” by BRYAN SCHNELLE

Bryan Schnelle’s “The Crunch” is the first of a series of artists’ installation series at BlueWhale.

– What inspired you of the title, “The Crunch?”

– “The title “The Crunch” comes from a poem by Charles Bukowski of the same name. One of my favorites, which I have come back to periodically over the past 14 years. Seemed a good fit. Very grim of course, but with a little shot of optimisim, you know? Epically simple and direct.”

Bryan Schnelle was born and raised in southern California. His work is a reaction to and assessment of the values and ideals of the false world that capitalism and consumer culture has created. Pulling directly from the source, he appropriates imagery from gossip, fashion, pop culture, and current events magazines to “include some element of reality”. By lifting the veil on what our society deems valuable and markets as important, he exposes the abysmal nothingness just beneath the surface. Bryan currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He has exhibited both locally and nationwide.
