Artist Locust Jones’ practice weaves layers of stories and images that replicate the frenetic pace at which society consumes every day news and current affairs. In his 10-metre long drawing, currently on display in Playback, he uses ink, pencil and watercolour to portray the anxiety and confusion the artist feels about the state of the world, to create what he has described as a ‘warped diary’
This month, the Youth Collective are thrilled to host a 3-hour performance by Locust titled 4×4. Accompanied by drummer Tim Bruniges, Locust will use the drum beats and drone soundscapes as a catalyst to further explore his practice while enduring the act of mark-making.
