April 30 – June 04, 2016 Reception: April 30, 7-10p
In fantasy we find a world in alteration, different from a normal waking beta-wave state. A plasticity where rigidness would typically exist, and a soft, brightly marbleized liquid for its life blood. The fictionalizing belongs to the lack of realness that surrounds us everyday, a comedy that reveals itself in the face of malfunction. A place where definition loses all its power and the reins are given to free play.
Courtney Johnson presents Lion Lair, a solo exhibition of new painting and sculpture.
