|WHO WEAKLING |
EXHIBITION AT NO NO GALLERY.
Works by Romy Hoffman (of Macromantics fame).
"For WHO WEAKLING, Romy has strictly sworn to exhibit only art created in a one week period.
She will spend a week drawing, then a week exhibiting. This is a form of Russian Roulette. Anything can and will happen."
|These constraints give Hoffman's exhibition freshness in the subject matter i.e. drawings about the election and the Masterchef Grand Finale. |
There are lots of drawing dealing with drinking!
My favourite was an alphabet using different drinks to represent each letter of the alphabet.
Unfortunately someone had already bought that one.
|Some of the drawings were presented in mismatched opshop frames bringing to mind the aesthetic of the climactic gallery scene from Pecker|
|From burnished and buffed|
|If you saw this from a distance would you know what it was? Is it a soggy nitrogen filled nappy? or maybe a decomposing cabbage?|
|Using the new fully functional Corky Saint Clair Maritime Mini Telescope with 10 x magnifciation, one is able to ascertain that it is infact Tween Super Hottie Justin Bieber. |
|Maritime Mini in unextended state. It measures 4 cm in its compact state and 8cm when fully extended. |

|Yup, he's using the old stick and poke technique that you sometimes see in prison movies. The ink gets pushed into the skin using a needle bound to a pencil using some thread. You get a wispy, whispery line that kinda says "whatever". |
To my eye it's not as try hard as a tattoo produced using a tattoo gun, which with its precision and dense colour often ends up looking like a graphic design excercise or a layout from Juxtapoz magazine.
|I like this triangle I got - it makes me look like I belong to some cool cult from the 70s. We chose the placement so when I wear necklaces they will pass through the triangle replicating that Pink Floyd album cover. |
|Triangles are so huge right now. Here is the transfer paper used to impress the design onto my neck.|
