DESCRIPTION

Tinlark warmly welcomes back Scott David Johnson for his second solo show in the Main Gallery.

Chicago artist Johnson creates oil paintings that are a survey of recognizable objects that bloom in the landscape around us. Separating most of these objects from their surroundings, Johnson allows their contexts to evaporate, letting ambiguity fill the empty spaces. While some of these objects explore the whimsy of once-dominant icons dissolving into the mists of memory, others suggest messes that need to be cleaned up, as lessons are learned from past mistakes. When Johnson turns his eye on these objects, he shares with us his fascination with their intricacies, no matter how obsolete, and their intriguing patterns, no matter how troubling.
