RECEPTION JULY 18, 7-9pm
Kobalt Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by assemblage artist Duncan Johnson. The artist will present his latest 2 and 3-dimensional “assembled paintings” created with the salvaged painted wood he recovers from the scrapyards of his native Vermont.
A master craftsman, Johnson’s affinity for the innate beauty and attributes of reclaimed wood is the cornerstone of his elegant and vaguely arithmetic compositions. Maintaining the often faded and scraped original colors of each board that he salvages, Johnson is careful to preserve evidence of the past life the materials divulge – each completed panel a myriad of anonymous stories open to interpretation.
