Description

Directional Work comprises 52 pages of Vancouver painter Collin Johanson’s drawings, prints, rubbings, and collages. In Johanson’s works, the dead, the most reified of objects and images, are given life again in a thriving ambiguity. The drawings bring to mind a kind of speech through bricolage, as if an alienated subject attempted to mark its identity and territory against that of society by forcing that society’s castoff objects and productions back into circulation. Domestic folk aesthetics collide with material process; a wooden sun sets, a teddy bear is printed, and a dock worker shoulders a loaded dice.
