2nd February - April 2019
Interseccion Arte Contemporaneo, SMA, MX
British artist based in San Miguel, Ian Johnson is the personification of cool, sophisticated, minimalist art in todays art scene with the added development of making minimalism look sexy. The exquisitively rendered lineal volumes created by the talented Englishman are perfect, incredibly precise and yet never cold.
The different shades of grays in this work are rendered warm by the juxtaposition of thin lines of yellow or beige which set off from the gray, the black and whites, somehow and magically, rendering warmth and light into the image. The main work in this exhibition is a repeat of his extraordinary calendar series but rendered in a totally different display of shards, triangles, colours and 'slits' making for a truly exciting composition.
Smaller wall pieces as well as a group of unusual and interesting sculptures round out his presentation.
