About the Work
Human ouroboros, shifting astral planes, and mysterious languages rendered in tilting calligraphy featured in a futuristic landscape of densely patterned architectural spaces: this is the meticulously created world of artist Jess Johnson. Johnson finds inspiration for her complex hand-drawn compositions from an array of visual culture that celebrates iconic imagery and distorted psychedelic experiences including video games, science-fiction films, rock posters, and comic books. This formal affinity, like the genres themselves, allows Johnson's work to delve into the broad exploration of the notion of fictional world building, the power of belief systems, and dimension jumping, resulting in a limitless reality encased within two dimensions.
Jess Johnson has upcoming solo shows at National Gallery of Australia (Canberra, Australia), Nanzuka Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), Ivan Anthony Gallery (Auckland, New Zealand). Selected solo exhibitions include Jack Hanley Gallery (New York, NY), Carriageworks (Sydney, Australia), Feemantle Arts Centre (Freemantle, Australia), Talbot Rice Gallery (Edinburgh, United Kingdom), and Darren Knight Gallery (Sydney, Australia). Selected group shows include Jack Hanley Gallery (New York, NY), Hubei Museum of Art (Wuhan, China), Monash University Museum of Art (Melbourne, Australia), Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (Casula, Australia), Geelong Gallery (Geelong, Australia), and Bendigo Art Gallery (Bendigo, Australia). Jess Johnson received her BFA from Canterbury University (New Zealand). Johnson was born in 1979 (Tauranga, New Zealand) and currently lives and works in New York, NY.
