Trigger Finger - Works By Emma Crisp

Date: February 03 2008

By: Sneaker Freaker

Known for her amazingly detailed customized sneakers as well as her awe inspiring art work, Emma leaves the Aussie shores with her first solo exhibition and last showing before returning to her hometown in London. A popular motif in streetwear for years, the trend of guns and weapons has been absorbed by high-end fashion, jewellery and even homewares. Crisp’s work explores the glamorisation and recent surge of popularity of gun culture, searching for the fine line where the image of a weapon shifts from contemporary design element to a representation of violence and war. Making frequent use of the image of the hand to portray a simple but striking connection to human nature, the exhibition presents several groups of work: large scale drawings of hands encasing bright camo print weapons; portraits of guerilla soldiers wearing designer fashion; sculptures of gang-signs paraded as wall decor. The result is a showcase of canvas work, prints and sculpture. Don’t miss your chance to see Crisp’s first solo show and her last exhibition in Australia.
