ANNE JOHNSTONE

The Kaleidoscope of the Mind
April 24 – May 14, 2015
Reception: Thursday, April 30, 2015 6-8 PM

As a refreshingly human counterpoint to the digital age, Anne Johnstone's paintings breathe new life into the mixed media format. Describing her artwork as "the antithesis of technological cool," Johnstone plays with the ideas of anxiety and modernity using all the tools at her disposal. She layers and juxtaposes acrylic, wax, and collage to confront and connect contradictory emotions and ideas: deconstruction and reconstruction, abstraction and representation, and pastoral scenes and postmodern anxiety all play their part in vivid color and texture. Shades of light and dark subject matters meld together seamlessly; farm animals and nervous conversationalists fade into newspaper clippings and tessellations, implying both the fragility and exuberance of contemporary life. Her process is equal parts energy and reflection, allowing for a direct, intuitive connection between the artist, the canvas, and the audience.

Johnstone's unique technique and subject matter derive from a background as diverse as the materials she uses. She draws from her experiences in rural Pennsylvania, the depths of emotional turmoil, and a life spent both within and without the art world.
