Every now and then (but hardly ever) you get two artists who really know how to work with the camera. It will become clear in an instant that JAMES LIEUTENANT AND KATE VASSALLO are they. So why would you take pics of anyone else ….? This is a very photogenic show and there were many others  keen to pose. They are at the end of the line but impressive nonetheless.  This is Graphics opened at Manuka several minutes ago and while the memories are still fresh lets drink to a great opening and hot show that generated a many a warm flush around the room. Loved the crisps and carbonossi. James and Kate got together, well they have always been together, to do a show that is totally wild.  As Louise our wise intern happened to say “Optical illusions, vanishing points of perspective and creative usage of colour and contrasts feature in This Is Graphics. In this show Vassallo and Lieutenant have created an array of captivating works, which are a significant and a intriguing departure from their Minimalist inspiration.” She often comes out with things like this and couldn’t have put it better. But the photos tell the story. This is Graphics ant CCAS Manuka until 16 June.
