DESCRIPTION

David O. Johnson has negotiated light, space and material in this large venue. The accomplished effect illuminates subtly to bridge structure and space.  

 Like most I am attracted to neon light. In my artwork, that initial attraction leads to the discovery of a contradiction in materials. Light, concrete, high voltage electricity, and Styrofoam combine to create metaphors of hypocrisy, conflict, abjection, or solitude all trapped in the guise of a simple formal structure. I expose the three-dimensional capabilities of neon and thus relate the object to the architecture that surrounds it. 
- David O. Johnson, 2011
