Kelley Johnson: Slow Hum, at Freight+Volume

Kelley Johnson’s work build on concepts from Op Art expanded field theory.

At first glance, they look like dimensional objects, but on closer inspection they become more like paintings, so there is a tension and shifting between the gaze and the glance.

Which reminds me of a chapter by the same title written by my old ‘pal’ Norman Bryson back in the 1980s.

All of which reinvigorates the subject of painting, which seems to have been partially subsumed into the digital sphere of late.
