New Pop: Illustrated AmericanaCarter, Larry Johnson, Sherrie Levine, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Prince, Jim Shaw, Andy Warhol February 15 - April 5, 2014
Larry Johnson (b.1959, Long Beach, California, USA) is an artist utilising modes of drawing, graphic design and photography to produce innovative print-based work. He lives and works in Los Angeles, California and received his BFA and MFA from the California Institute of the Arts.
Johnson engages the medium of photography to create images rather than capture them. With humour and vulnerability, he makes work that peels back superficiality to reveal the complexities of contemporary culture. He amalgamates text-based narratives, graphic design, popular history, class awareness and the production of cartoon illustration idiosyncratically to create striking images.
