PACIFIC WASTE - Ben Jacques
OPENING RECEPTION: August 31st @ 7pm
EXHIBITION RUNS: August 31st - October 7th, 2012
Ben Jacques has been working with drawing and painting since a very young age. His obsession with B-movies, new wave, 80's cartoons, and video games has produced an absurd aesthetic that conjures dark humour and outer-worldly imagery. From airbrushed faux-commercialized logos, video and sound collages made from bad movies to blob like landscapes made in ink, Ben's work all share the same language in a dimension that speaks to themselves. 'Pacific Waste' is a collection of the artists works from august 2011 to august 2012.
A video performance titled 'THE NEW SHREDDERS' ** will be performed by the artist at the opening at Pith on August 31st
