Blue Mountains Cutlural Centre - Locust Jones
‘A week in the life of the world’ grandstands the awesomeness of Locust Jones.
On entry to the vast cavity of the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre we are slapped in the face with fierce intention. Dead smack in the middle of a cold Katoomba winter we were immediately warmed with the visually bold and colourful onslaught.
If you were marooned on a desert island for the past year then you would have been brought up to speed with the international news throughout this vivid exhibition. This whole show is beyond words, the intensity of the graphic reflection of planes dropping out of the sky, wars that never end and weekly catastrophes are thrown at us with wild inhibition.
It’s seriously intense but at the same time it’s visually captivating. Stories beautifully and masterly interwoven throughout each piece, recorded for prosperity and the perfect archive for when the Internet drops off the planet.
