The work of Andrea Innocent, in her debut solo exhibition ‘Alone, but not lonely’ at Lamington Drive gallery on George St, is sweet and creepy. Her illustrations are detailed and well executed but what impressed me most about this show is the life sized installation of a cardboard cubby house containing a young hikikomori hunched over a computer. It’s so real and a powerful symbol of contemporary isolation. You can read more about Andrea on her blog.

I attended the opeing night on Thursday 30 April (the same night as the Acorn opening at Gorker – it was a busy night!) and the exhibition is on until 23 May.

    I love Andrea Innocent’s work… she’s in the Death Mook and was also profiled in YEN this issue. So talented!
