Ben Hutchings has been working in a diligent fever for the past three months to produce nine intricately drawn and constructed non-sequential cartoon dioramas specifically for nine on seven. Wielding cardboard, marker, screen tones, clear plastic, glue, styrofoam, pins, magnets and humour into 3-D OTT.
A must see.
All works are available for sale.
There will be nourishing Mulled Wine to warm the hands and minds.
This will be nine on seven's final show until the Spring so come and celebrate. Show running until end of July
Ben Hutchings' main love is comics and he's been trying to draw them for 16 years. He's created 25 comic books with titles such as 'You Stink & I Don't', 'Glenjamin' and 'Comics of Smallness' which appear in those scary little underground shops around Australia. His strip 'Tales From the Pub' appears weekly in Picture Magazine (page 36 if you want to avoid embarrassment) and is in it's fourth year, while his much-loved 'Lesson Master' appears in a spin-off mag. His drawings and animations appear now and then on CDs, websites, children's books and TV, and even on a gold coin series for the Royal Australian Mint. He recently launched his first music CD, Tootleg Boy, which has 280 songs about going to the toilet.
This is his first solo exhibition.
