Johansson Projects presents Katy Stone + Allison Gildersleeve

Johansson Projects presents new work by Allison Gildersleeve and Katy Stone in Bramblur an exhibition that examines the material of nature and the nature of materials. Known internationally for her large scale public projects, Katy Stone's constructions in metal and Duralar act as both microscope and kaleidoscope, zooming in on the radical strangeness of plants’ physiques while enhancing the effect with hyperactive colors. Occupying the space between the organic and the fantastic, these dripping fields of acidic color resemble plant life that has been plugged into a circuit. Hailing from New York, Allison Gildersleeve’s paintings recreate the way landscapes morph into washes of foregrounded color and texture when seen zooming by from a car window. The tangled streaks vibrate at a high frequency impossible to pin down. It appears that each brushstroke was somewhere else a second ago, commanding the senses to be constantly active.

Show runs June 23- August 18, 2011
Opening Reception: July 1, 5-8pm

Johansson Projects is 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. Johansson Projects was voted best gallery in 2008 and 2009 and is a locus for curators, collectors, and artists to connect and engage in dialogue with the larger art community both regionally and nationally.
