Second Seed - Paul Johnson
Through a ruby veil, Johnson‚Äôs second division sports pastimes expose themselves to our sudden telepathic vision. Johnson‚Äôs plastic paintings don‚Äôt come off in one go though. One has to peer through the diaphanous surface to collect the fragments of the tableau. re-title.com
For Paul Johnson's exhibition in 2003 at One in the Other one had to peer through the diaphanous surfaces of his collages to collect the fragments of an unsettling tableau. Placed over the work was a translucent laminate surface that stood between the picture plane and the viewer and which sealed inside the illusionism of the picture.
Since then Johnson has removed the laminate surface from his work. What are shown are the intricately detailed constructions of collages using a technique interlocking fragments of individually hand-coloured paper.
