Brisbane artist CJ Hendry set herself the ambitious task of drawing 50 drawings in 50 days. Each piece depicts a Death Row final meal upon a Hermes plates.
This exhibition began on Instagram, with CJ publishing snaps of the drawings in progress to her 200k followers, as well as a finished piece at the end of each day. It was good to see the work in the flesh.
The exhibition is being held in a pop-up space on Gertrude street, Fitzroy. Inside and out, the space was carefully considered and thought out. There was even an onsite barista providing coffee for those viewing the work.
Some of the meals drawn were nachos, fish, waffles, lollie pops, and even a couple of lines of blow.
The hyper-realistic drawings are spectacular. A video on CJ's Instagram shows her her busting her layered pointillism out like a machine. Getting this much work complete in a 50 day time frame, as I viewed the work, all I can think about was R.S.I. The drawings can be enjoyed from a distance, almost looking like real objects stuck to the wall. Or up close, investigating the intricate details and line work.
Overall this exhibition is an example of how creativity, social media, management and event planning can come together to create an overall experience. I recommend checking out this exhibition, especially if you're into drawing, interior design or event management.
