Holly Johnson Gallery will present "Vibrant," an exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist, Dion Johnson. The exhibition marks the artist’s second solo show at the gallery and features 10 new paintings. An exhibition catalogue written by Annabel Osberg will be available.

It is not easy to put into words the striking visual impact of Johnson’s boldly hued works - images that look, at turns, like bright ribbons of color, or light refracted along the edges of falling water.

Fat but taut, elegant but forceful: such descriptions might seem paradoxical unless you’re looking at his starkly linear canvases with crisply delineated vertical shapes twisting together - a sort of abstract yin and yang, suspended in space. Devising his pictures with the premeditation of an architect, Johnson crafts his compositions in Photoshop, then transfers the initial sketches, which he considers “blueprints,” to canvases via rulers and masking tape. Even his utensils, drywall tools, rubber spatulas and spray guns, seem more like that of a mason.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 19.
