Press release from: Johansson Projects

In the back gallery, Johansson Projects presents Unearth, a group show that offers emerging artists the opportunity to give back and support local collectors. The show is comprised of five artists making their a-terrestrial work available for less than a grand. Toying with the natural, these artists take a leap of faith and define the unknown. Ellen Black's media players are windows to a fractured utopia. Her cobbled together urban landscapes belittle the attempts of technologists to provide a perfect immersive virtual environment. Bert Bergen fabricates a hazy sense of the sacred through an amalgam of decontextualized narratives and mystical references. His silkscreens and automotive paint on MDF allow the indistinct images to enter the objective world. Scott Greenwalt's images exist in an in-between stage, remnants of a mutated life-form now existing as those entities that are left behind when we pass on. Meticulously rendered heaps of hair and folds of fabric come together as a new being. In Jessalyn Haggenjos' multi-processed oil paintings on panel, landscape is reduced to paint and allows an opportunity for various techniques to converge and build a new visceral topography. Barry Underwood's altered nightscapes are an exaggeration of the ordinary. Exhume yourself from instinct, and experience the anomalous oeuvre of these five visionaries.

Show runs November 11-December 18, 2010

Johansson Projects is a contemporary art gallery that functions as a curatorial laboratory, creating exhibitions that pair established and internationally-recognized artists with up-and-coming locals. Its unique architecture allows for innovative exhibitions, prompting viewers to actively engage with artists who explore the delicate mysteries embedded in modernity often using unorthodox materials and methods.
