Johansson Projects presents Loss Revision featuring Eric

In Loss Revision, Eric Petitti presents a series of works excerpted from his project "The Dreadnaught Saga". The project is designed to emphasize the ways in which depictions of history can distort the past in order to influence the present. On close inspection, the details within the work offer different perspectives either embracing the larger story or contradicting the truth that they claim to espouse. This exhibit presents the competing theories put forth to explain the disappearance of the legendary defense ship the Golden Pear in 2535 CE, whose loss led to the First Polar War between the Antarctic Collective and the Neothian Union.

Eric Petitti was born and raised in the Boston area. He received his B.F.A. at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2010 he graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute as their Graduate Fellow in Painting & Drawing with top honors including the Ella King Torrey Graduate Award for Innovation and Excellence in the Arts and was selected as the alternate for the Headlands Center for the Arts’ Tournesol Award.

Show runs March 10- April 23, 2011
Opening Reception: March 19, 5-8pm
