Frontman is a solo exhibition by emerging local artist Campbell Chalmers. Based around hardcore music, the energy and passion of performance and creativity through this type of musical expression. The works look into the psyche and motivations of the hardcore audience and how aggressive and violent music and performance can have a cathartic effect for both performers and audiences at hardcore shows. The selection of prints and drawings highlight both the outward energy and inward reflection of the emotions of those involved in hardcore music.
