Floating in space

I'll talk at length about Ellen Portch's remarkable new show later this week, but in the meantime here's the plug I put on facebook:

Ellen Portch's exhibition The Road to Island Block, which opens tomorrow at the University of Auckland's George Fraser Gallery, rips apart the space-time continuum to let unidentified objects float over the landscapes of Te Ika a Maui and Suffolk, and sends waka from the Kaipara Harbour into outer space. Sci fi freaks, antiquarians, futurologists, and admirers of skillful figurative painting will all enjoy Ellen's new works. The Road to Island Block develops many of the themes of Portch's earlier exhibitions, like her eerie Wall show, which I discussed here
