Art Exhibition Opening – “Coalesce” by Portia Roper
Portia Roper is a multi-media artist, born and raised in Taranaki.
This exhibition explores morphing animals by gradually changing them from one thing to another – through merging segments, they become one. As the animals all grow together or merge into one body, Portia’s ideas coalesce into one theory.
These very unique creatures are anthropomorphised by each having individual names. Quite playful and warm, they simultaneously give one the feeling they have could have been stitched together by Dr. Frankenstein. Portia’s works are rather grotesque, when you think about what it is, it is almost horrifying in an oddly beautiful way.
Come view this fantastical world of 2-D and 3-D.
