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