Vinyl and acrylic on Plexiglass mounted to wood panel.
Vancouver-based artist Ben Skinner is making some of my favourite work right now. I feel like a lot of artists making text-based work can sort of get stuck producing the same work over and over but Ben is constantly trying something completely new. Whether he uses paint, or sprinkles, or plaster, or mirrors, there’s a brilliantly absurd quality to it all. And if you look for long enough many of the dad jokes become something quite profound.
