Johansson Projects presents New Document

Press release from: Johansson Projects

There is a new rectangular viewbox into understanding what it means to be human. Johansson Projects presents New Document, where our expanding visual literacy provides a schematic history of the materials and methods employed by artists Andrew Chapman, Matthew Draving, Hunter Longe and Hugh Zeigler. Temporal interpretations are generated and informed by our relationship to a computerized environment. Age-old descriptive terms such as layering, cropping and rendering take on new connotations when properties from the world of screens are engaged within the work. Windows, gridded matrices, split-screens and drop-shadows append idiosyncratic cues to our visual vocabulary and become an inherent aspect of making and viewing objects. Gesture extends from the brushstroke to encompass video compression, 3-d rendering, and a multitude of printing methods as the artists excavate through non- linear layers of medium and mediation.

Show runs December 15- January 21, 2012
Opening Reception: December 17, 3-5pm

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 moss ceiling by Misako Inaoka and unique architecture allow for innovative exhibitions in a fully immersive viewing environment. With no show confined purely to gallery walls, it prompts viewers to actively engage with artists who explore the mysteries embedded in modernity often using unorthodox materials and methods. Johansson Projects is a locus for curators’ collectors, and artists to connect and engage in dialogue with the larger art community both regionally and nationally.
