Courtney Johnson "See You Next Tuesday" at Park Life Gallery



See You Next Tuesday
New Paintings by Courtney Johnson


Opening Reception Friday November 4, 7-10 pm
Show runs November 4 – November 27, 2011

Courtney Johnson paints wild and gnarled women engaged in wild and gnarly behavior. The reckless figures in her invented world bare multiple rows of razor sharp teeth and glare with no remorse. She considers these traits through line drawings within her paintings, to emphasize an unresolved, half-in-this-world woman. In her current body of work, Johnson cultivates a sense of character and place somewhere between convention and fantasy, where figures are unhinged and consumed by impulse.
