VCA ART 2021

Sammy-Jo Lang-Waite

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Photography)

Through my work I attempt to examine the phenomenon of Ren & Stimpy as a metaphorical interpretation of both Richard Prince and fucking. What began as a personal journey of fuckedism has translated into images of tomato sauce with a pie and boobs, which resonate with bogan people questioning their own fuckedness.
My mixed-media Commodore V8 embodies an idiosyncratic view of Tuff Street, yet the familiar imagery allows for a connection between wet T-shirts, burnouts and skids.
My work is in the private collection of probs Steve Irwin, who said ‘fuck off cunt!!, that’s some real Shit Art.’ I am a recipient of a grant from Folsom Prison, where I served time for stealing mugs and tie clips from Officeworks. I have exhibited in group shows at KFC a few times. I currently spend my time between my The Kitchen and The Dunny.
