I dropped into Back Gallery Project last week to check out Ben Skinner‘s show, Colouring Outside And Reading Between. It is art that is both playful, and very clever. The artist plays with words used within the work, and does interesting things with very simple materials.

These are a series of sculptures using words repeated twice in the English language. It’s pretty funny to realize how many there are. My favourite is Beep Beep.

Why yes, these are hundreds of pencil crayons sorted by colour and arranged in a spectrum. This thing is fascinating to view as you walk around it.



Colouring Outside and Reading Between ends this weekend. Visit Back Gallery Project at 602 E Hastings Street at Princess to see it.
