IT’S ART IF I SAY IT’S ART. OTHERWISE IT’S NOT.
Eastern Projects Gallery is pleased to announce Scott Johnson’s solo exhibition, “IT’S ART IF I SAY IT’S ART. OTHERWISE IT’S NOT.”, running from Saturday, March 16th to April 27th, 2019. The opening reception will take place on March 16th from 6 - 10 pm, with a closing reception on April 27th from 6 - 10 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
This body of work chronicles a series of ongoing investigations in mixed-media art which formulate a dialectic between a universe of rationalized form and one of intuition. This dialectic metaphorically stands in for a range of interplays, among them, geometric form as a metaphor for received knowledge versus free form as a metaphor for invention/spontaneity, familiar elements from our media-scape versus the unfamiliar, praxis versus projection, gravity versus levitation and so on. The art-making process of layering various materials allows for the creation of depth and dimension, a curation which both buries certain meanings while allowing others to emerge.
