This exhibition “Avoidance” is a project I have been working towards for the last 10 years. It uses images that I have developed since I was a teenager. In this exhibition my works look to discuss the relationship media has on our society. In my art I typically use illustrative collage, which are created with paper clippings layered over paint, the format in itself has political undertones.

My works use symbolism which explores ideas of media and suppression through images of television screens, paper clippings and sensory bars. The works look into our western culture and consumerism as well as what it means to be part of it.

In this exhibition I have begun to branch out with use of new media forms such as print and spray paint.

HOLDOUTS OF TE ARO | DAVID ELLIS

OPENING: 5.30pm -7.00pm, Tuesday 4 August

OPENING HOURS:
12.00 noon - 5.00pm, Wed - Fri
10.00 am - 5.00 pm, Sat - Sun

In the early 20th century Te Aro was tightly packed with tenements and workers' cottages.

This is a celebration of these survivors of decades of urban makeover in the streets surrounding Thistle Hall. There are surprisingly few holdouts left other than those restored in the nearby "heritage precinct" following the destruction much of upper Cuba St during building of the bypass.

The paintings in this exhibition show some of those still standing, hiding in plain view surrounded by offices, apartment blocks, and parking lots.
