MFA Student Anita Jacobsen

Whitecliffe MFA student Anita Jacobsen’s and fellow artists Ans Tonga, Amanda Warwick, Onesian Allen, Tony Tia and Limi Manu’s Girls Who Shoot / Boys Who Draw exhibition is not a show about cowgirls and boys in a gunfight. Nor does it make witty references to drug epidemics and samurai swords. It is a show that is quite literal in its naming - Girls Who Shoot refers to female photographers and Boys Who Draw, to the male artists alongside them, who have a strong drawing aesthetic or process to their practice. In this tandem exhibition, six artists will present works that engage with a variety of subject matters. From an exploration of the gold teeth that fill the mouths of many beautiful Tongan women, intricate drawings that reference cultural cringe, the issues and modes of identity, framing contexts, and the ‘Urban Oceanic’, to graffiti art specifically made for family portraiture.
