Burger Force: The exhibition

My last hurrah at the gallery was curating this.
Its an exhibition based on the wonderfully cult new comic, Burger Force.
Directed and written by Jackie Ryan who is of course from Bris-vegas. You can read the comic online at http://www.burgerforce.com/ - it gets released in parts.

The exhibition shows some of the storyline from part one & two of episode one. It also has some largely unseen work showing how it comes together behind the scenes, and some character stills.

I am quite a fan now, and can't wait for the next episode to come out. I will have to wait five years to read it all, as the creation is such a labour intensive process.

What I love the most is that Jackie comes from a writing and film background, and yet she has an amazing aesthetic for still images. Each artwork is heavy with narrative, yet not with words.
Here are a couple of shots from the install. The exhibition is on at Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba until 24 April. If you are young at heart you can even attend a workshop with Jackie and learn how to shoot images for comics.
