28 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 12, 2009 MB Alive What's On 29 Dark art a balance of passion FIONA BRADY Jack Hume with his artwork at Artexpress at The Armory at Newington. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP252363 WHAT: Artexpress exhibition WHERE: Armory Gallery, Building 18, Newington Armory, Jamieson St, Sydney Olympic Park WHEN: 10am-4pm every day until April 29 COST: Free DETAILS: Phone 9714 7888 or go to www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au GET an insight into the teenage mind at the Artexpress exhibition at Sydney Olympic Park. This eclectic exhibition showcases the best works from the 2007 HSC Visual Arts examination. Ashfield local Jack Hume, 17, is thrilled to be one of the exhibiting artists. ''It's such an honour to be included,'' he said. ''The standard is really high.'' Hume's work, Layers of Self, is composed of three huge self portrait stencils, representing his emotional layers and feelings. It fits well with the exhibition's theme -- Art of Darkness. ''In a sense the work is dark, but I didn't set out to create something that was strikingly dark or dismal,'' Hume said. ''It relates to the feelings of isolation and dispossession teenagers face in the passage to adulthood.'' Hume, who cites photographers Bill Henson and Cindy Sherman as key influences, is also a musician. He's in an Indie rock band called Mudd Club with his brother. He wants to pursue a career in both art and music when he finishes McDonald College in a year's time. ''I try to balance both my passions,'' he said.
