Reminiscent of geologic formations, seeming like objects from a cabinet of natural curiosities, Bethany Johnson
's intimate sculptures in this show offer a multilayered meditation
on deep time, material metamorphosis, and the anthropogenic landscaping of landfills, quarries, and road cuts. These dimensional works are composed of plastics, paper, aluminum, fabric, rubber, foam, cardboard, and wood – densely bound together with pressure by a hidden, internal armature of screws and bolts – then trimmed and sanded to a smooth polish.
Opening reception: Sat., Jan. 22, 7-10pm
