WISH YOU WERE HERE...
June 4th- June 27th 2015
Opening Night: Thursday 4th of June 6-8pm
For her exhibition at Mailbox Art Space Jennifer Rooke has created a series of drawings inspired by a search for the words "I miss" in sent e-mails.
The works form a sentimental narrative of loss and desire yet the expression "I miss", taken out of its original context and repeated, soon reads like a cliché. Wish you were here... takes an objective look at personal confessions of loneliness and longing to draw a humourous picture for a wider audience.
Jennifer Rooke (b. 1990) completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Drawing) at RMIT in 2013. She has been involved with group and solo exhibitions and illustrates and writes for different Melbourne-based publications.
