Holly Johnson Gallery presents James Drake: Flocking Shoaling Swarming (Blue Kiss) opening reception
Holly Johnson Gallery will be presenting Flocking Shoaling Swarming (Blue Kiss), a selection of new collages comprised of envelopes by the internationally acclaimed artist, James Drake.
For more than 40 years, Drake has considered the vast and abstract against the singular and specific in his multivalent artwork. Moving comfortably between media - video projection, drawing, welded sculpture, photography and printmaking - he defies a ready, singular style. Instead, Drake maps a space of humanity toggling between the languages of physics and poetry, illustrated by images of current events and cultural history. The nine collage works in the exhibition are the result of Drake's relationship with the evolving idea of mail and communication. He is drawing and writing on envelopes that he has mounted on archival paper.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 23.
