Johansson Projects presents Opal Dust featuring Casey Watson

Opal Dust features Casey Watson depicting the sharp-edged task of portraying a soft exterior. Watson’s meticulous colored pencil and graphite drawings invite the viewer to unearth her treasures and inspect their intricacies. Up close, petals, leaves and stems arrange themselves into romantic kaleidoscopic wreaths. These fibrous orbs careen and breed, evoking ideas of natural symmetry, squished floral formations, and cycles of life and death. From a distance, the same drawings take on new forms – fireworks, galaxies, and magnified molecules pop from the paper.

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.

JAY NELSON | MAKING LANDS | JUNE 7 - JULY 20
In Jay Nelson’s prodigious body of built work there is always the dare for the viewer to see from a new perspective. To inhabit what he calls new ‘structures for seeing’. A Honda Civic, as a perspective. A tree, as a perspective. A backyard. The dare in Making Lands is to inhabit Nelson’s quiet nights after putting his children to sleep. And to take up that part calm, part strung

ANNA FIDLER + CATHY LU | HER KIND | 5-8PM FRI FEB 1
Cathy Lu and Anna Fidler shape new myths surrounding characters of the past. With bright colors, topographic energy portraits sculpted from layers of paper, and misshapen ceramic imitations, their works declare a distinctly feminine revolution. Inspired by the ancient Chinese myth of the Immortal Peach Garden, where peaches represent longevity and prosperity, and combining that with the sexualized symbols that they are in American pop culture, Lu transforms these peaches
