Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas will present a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist, Dion Johnson. The exhibition, titled Optic Energy, marks the artist's solo debut at the gallery and features new paintings and works on paper.

Johnson's paintings and works on paper combine and explore dynamic opposites: expansiveness and compression, darkness and light. Johnson's intuitive use of color evokes the contemporary urban, digital and natural landscape, and skews the vocabulary of abstraction into a hybrid techno-language. His compositions use broad open shapes with convex/concave edges against multi-planed bands, evoking atmospheric spatial shifts. Whether observing the curvature of freeway interchanges or bright noon daylight, Johnson's work is a clear balance of the harmonic and dissonant qualities in our environment.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 4.
