Ian Johnson and Sadie Barnette "Last Time It Was Gray" at Park LifeJuxtapoz // Thursday, 07 Jul 2011
Former Juxtapoz feature Ian Johnson (who makes fanstastic paintings of Jazz musicians) is teaming up with Sadie Barnette for a two-person exhibit, Last Time It Was Gray, at San Francisco's Park Life, opening July 8. The show will features figurative elements that they inextricably link to their own versions of what could be referred to as a New Abstraction.
Park Life notes, "Incorporating different but overlapping dramatic visual narratives into their work, Barnette and Johnson offer their engaging works on paper, drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations in a collaborative event. Their works address and give insight into themes that include popular culture, class, consumerism, music, gender roles and contemporary art. Providing only fragments of information, the completion of the storylines, images and thoughts are left to be formed in the minds of the individual viewers."
