Rodney Graham: Props and Other Paintings

Info

Charles H. Scott Gallery
1399 Johnston Street
Vancouver, BC
September 17 – November 16, 2014

Words

As one of Vancouver's most respected artists, Rodney Graham's series of shows in collaboration with the Rennie Gallery this year have been a real treat. The third and final instalment, Props and Other Paintings, is comprised of works that featured in light box pieces such as The Gifted Amateur, Pipe Cleaner Artist, My Late Early Styles and Lobbing Potatoes at a Gong. Graham's narratives have a wonderful sense of humour, highlighting his personal and cultural insights, and while the art featured in them was originally conceived only as a piece in a bigger puzzle, their development and evolution warrants a deeper look based purely on artistic value.

Junya Watanabe Man Panel Trousers

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. 100% Wool.

Words

Junya Watanabe has a way of making everything else I'm looking at just that little bit less appealing. I thought I needed a pair of navy trousers for winter, but all the others I've seen pale in comparison to this option, made up of three pairs. Whereas most designers would have struggled to avoid making this treatment look tacky, as usual Junya hits the nail right on the head.
