Ben Skinner’s practice explores the nature of language through the use of text and materiality. Calling on a vast knowledge of materials and methods, Skinner applies his hand to concepts that are by turn ironic, witty, introspective, and questioning. His works often combine mechanical production methods common in sign-making with traditional materials and techniques such as hand-applied gold leaf, flocking, plaster, neon, and silk marbling. Skinner lives and works in Vancouver. He shows with Winsor Art Projects in Vancouver and is represented by Herringer-Kiss in Calgary and UpRise Art in New York.
