I was lucky enough to make the short drive south from Santa Fe to do a studio visit this month with Bernalillo-based artist Bart Johnson, on behalf of our client Mindy Solomon Gallery. His show “The Work of Bart Johnson: Inside the Labyrinth” opens at the gallery November 10th through December 15th in St. Petersburg, Florida.
I’m blogging about my meeting with Bart over at Mindy Solomon today; have a look and get a sneak peek at some of his newest works!
Here’s a short excerpt from my write-up:
“Bart Johnson wants to give people something they can’t see in the real world. His small-scale compositions consist of fluid, undulating, and seemingly infinite arrangements of imagined figures. Upon each new look, the viewer is bound to discover additional bodies, forms, and features at first unseen. As he paints each piece, Johnson illustrates a labyrinth of both life and fancy…”
Florida friends, don’t miss the Opening Night Reception Saturday, November 10th, during the Second Saturday Art Walk in downtown St. Pete from 6-8:30pm.
