Fresh Cut is our annual emerging artists exhibition with works selected from the graduating student exhibitions at Queensland art schools. One of the high points is Kirsty Bruce's installation of hundreds of small drawings and paintings on paper religiously reproducing images from teen and fashion magazines. Sprinkled across the wall, Bruce's inventory of poses suggests a teenage girl's bedroom wall papered with favourite images. For complete contrast, Emma McLean stars in her own narcissistic video nasty, eating and regurgitating sausage meat. Her gross-out suggests a porn movie, albeit one that may not give us pleasure.
