Ellen Porteus


7 June — 1 July 2017

Lamington Drive is pleased to present Shameless, the debut solo exhibition of Melbourne-based illustrator Ellen Porteus.

This will be our inaugural opening and exhibition at our new Collingwood location on Budd Street featuring a completely redesigned gallery and office space designed by Nest Architects.

A tongue-in-cheek collection of mixed media work, Shameless explores the uncomfortable awareness of Ellen’s own self-obsession and how this has shaped a troubled relationship with her artistic fears. This playful collection both projects and celebrates the honest realisations and irrational insecurities that artists usually cloak within their perfectly crafted and marketable self-image.

Spanning illustration, animation, and installation, this collection will also see Porteus experimenting with new mediums and materials including neon, silk and perspex.
