TRANSIT at Chicago's Vertical Gallery

New 3D work on exhibit through June

Posted Jun 10, 2014
I'm excited to announce an exhibition of new work. These prints continue to be more sculptural: mixing layered paper, photographs and gel transfers. They push the 3D feel of my work even further. <img src="/media/photos/TRANSIT-NEW-Vertical-Gallery_JJ_June.jpg"><br> I'm showing alongside some talented mixed-media artists at <a href="http://verticalgallery.com/">Vertical Gallery</a> in Chicago's Ukrainian Village. The show is titled Transit and features street inspired work from Australia, NY and Chicago. <B>The work will be on display through the month of June. Gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 6pm and Sunday & Monday, by appointment.</B> For a personal tour of the exhibit, please contact me at <a href="mailto:jj@planckstudios.com">jj at planckstudios.com</a> to discuss the details. And if you can't make it to Chicago in June, you can <a href="http://verticalgallery.com/collections/jonathan-michael-johnson">browse the collection on Vertical Gallery's website</a>. Thanks for your continued support and interest - and I hope you have a chance to see my new work in person.

This composite image was then used to create the digital template seen above. Printed multiple times, the template was cut apart then reconstructed. The template marks the transition point between the digital image and the final cut paper assemblage. My process explores a rhythm in the analog/digital dynamic.</font><br> <img src="/media/photos/vertical-gallery-map.jpg"><br>
