David Ellis, What's he building in there?
This photo doesn't come close to conveying the absolute magic of this piece by David Ellis that's in the group show, All Cut Up, at Roebling Hall. Today is the last day so this is your last chance to see it. Approaching the work from across the room I thought that it was a really interesting painting, but as I got closer I realized that it had been made out of old album covers. It felt like the organ fill at the beginning of Skynyrd's Tuesday's Gone, the way the chords pull up to the edge and then recede back into the song with you in tow.
Oh, and did I mention that the rest of the show is fucking excellent? The rest of the show is fucking excellent.
