‘Bounds. Ends. Limits.’ is a solo exhibition of new work by Glasgow-based artist Ben Skea. Utilising a multi-faceted approach, incorporating moving image, sound and 3D printed sculpture, he examines the materiality of the artefact and the way in which it can function as a cultural stimulant. Skea is interested in how an object or event is read by the viewer and the opposing responses it can evoke. 2D printed imagery is reordered and reconstructed into 3D forms within the computer to explore how thoughts can transfer between physical objects – an information exchange that can challenge the rigidity of boundaries.
Ben Skea, who works and lives in Glasgow, studied Fine Art Printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art and Electronic Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. He works primarily with moving image and sound. His recent work has become interdisciplinary, encompassing sculpture and experimental animation. Skea has an interest in the unknown spaces in-between physical objects and the interconnectivity of all objects in nature.
After having shown work in group shows and screenings in amongst others New York City (USA), Lucca (IT), Edinburgh and Dundee, ‘Bounds. Ends. Limits.’ Will be Skea’s premier Glasgow solo exhibition.
