Best known for his meticulous cardboard replicas of obsolete technology—Polaroid cameras, boomboxes, printing presses—Los Angeles-based artist Kiel Johnson also applies his detail-oriented practice to painting and prints, such as Everything I Own (2009), an ink-on-paper composition that depicts, per the title, everything in Johnson’s possession at the time of creation. Kiel’s obsessive urges and nostalgic affection make for works that are both charming and at times unhinged.
