* HAHA and Hames Wilson | sequence *
Sequence is a exhibition that explores ideas into the process of the art of stencils here presented in its traditional form & through rotoscopes in animation. Sequence is also a collaboration between Mentor & student. Over the years James Wilson has been mentored in different forms of art by HAHA (aka Regan Tamanui) by means of stencil making. This exhibition sheds a bit of light into an old & new approach to stencil making by pushing the boundaries to reinvent old methods with new discoveries. This exhibition incorporates works by the pair in their artist residency at QBank in Queenstown Tasmania (affiliated with Off the Kerb). Wilson a Melbourne based artist looks into the idea of pigeon racing & air travel by using sick bags acquired from the low budget travel corporation commonly known as Jetstar as a metaphor for getting from A to B in the shortest possible time frame for the cheapest deal as the prices go up everyday, similar to gambling. Wilson also uses stencils & drawings to animate his rotoscopes , which involve countless hours of repetitive drawing to create a ten second video file. HAHA also Melbourne based artist adopts a more traditional approach to his stencil practice by researching imagery related to sport , historical buildings & an experience on top of Mount Owen. Sport is an interesting topic for HAHA, the players & their uniforms change over time but the experience of sport is still the same, weather its AFL or cricket. HAHA creates six layer stencils the transforms in a vibrant image. dates 4 - 18 May 2017 OPENING Fri 5 May 6 - 9pm
