> DESCRIPTION

There is a new rectangular viewbox into understanding what it means to be human. Johansson Projects presents New Document, where our expanding visual literacy provides a schematic history of the materials and methods employed by artists Andrew Chapman, Matthew Draving, Hunter Longe and Hugh Zeigler. Temporal interpretations are generated and informed by our relationship to a computerized environment. Age-old descriptive terms such as layering, cropping and rendering take on new connotations when properties from the world of screens are engaged within the work. Windows, gridded matrices, split-screens and drop-shadows append idiosyncratic cues to our visual vocabulary and become an inherent aspect of making and viewing objects. Gesture extends from the brushstroke to encompass video compression, 3-d rendering, and a multitude of printing methods as the artists excavate through non-linear layers of medium and mediation.

Show runs December 15-January 21, 2012
Opening Reception: December 17, 3-5pm
