Press release from: Johansson Projects

Johansson Projects presents SHEBAM! POW! BLOP! WIZZ! featuring work by Rachel Kaye. Kaye's textile playgrounds channel the eternally dramatic love affair between art and fashion. Ripped from fashion magazines today's top trends melt into mazes of color and pattern, pure visual stimulation devoid of opinion or moral stance. As if conducting an operation, Kaye deconstructs the visual fabric of her physical fabrics, letting the symbiosis of art and fashion exist on the same picture plane. Eventually any trace of the textiles' former life as a clothing object is forgotten as the patterns invite comparisons to graffiti, the internet, hieroglyphics and even technicolor cartography. The ghosts of high art masters like Yayoi Kusama and Andy Warhol loom above the trendy polka dots and floral motifs, yet instead of lamenting their grand visions' fall to consumer levels Kaye revels in the beautiful all-at-onceness of it all.

Show runs November 29-January 12, 2013
Artist Reception: December 1, 3-5pm

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 moss ceiling by Misako Inaoka and unique architecture allows 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.
