Statement

​Mary Johnson utilizes utilitarian and domestic scrappings in her work, creating tableaus that place themselves at the intersection of historical narratives and contemporary American life. Working with a variety of media– including fabric, wood, cardboard, and metal– Johnson creates artifacts that both memorialize and transform their material object-hood.
