In their first solo project with White Walls Gallery, Brooklyn-Based duo Skewville, crafted an exuberant exhibit filled with bold paintings and interactive installations. Playground Tactics explores the aesthetics of old school city playgrounds through urban materials that might otherwise be discarded. Worn metalshelvingand wood panels are transformed into brightly-detailed paintings while old radios, televisions and other vintage toys are arranged into framed compositions. A cheeky sense-of-humor surfaces in much of the work, with just one example being a few remotecontrollerslabeled ‘Mind Control,’ and with the inclusion of tire swings, a see-saw, a basketball hoop and a roundabout, Playground Tactics guarantees a fun visit for just about anyone.
