Art Martha. Fast Food Hell.
Newcastle this weekend, be sure to check out Ryan Fitzgerald's exhibition at Darcy & Rose just off Hunter St Mall. The show features breathtaking portraits and gut churning images of iconic Australian fast food items, think the stodgiest meat pie you've ever seen and the phallic, though here it's more turd-like, Chiko Roll. Over the past year or so Ryan has been perfecting a wet plate collodian method of photographing his chosen subjects using an 8x10 camera, and while the food is disturbing, the results are anything but. The show ends Sunday November 3, you'll be rewarded visually for checking this terrific little exhibition out.
