ART TALK

June 1st, 2015 — 12:16pm

480 ART TALK 2

“Jay Mark Johnson’s remarkable photographs of waves possess the same insistent energy and drama that I find in the great seascapes of J.M.W.Turner currently on view at the Getty Museum.”

Christopher Finch

“Johnson’s work applies the methods of modular repetition associated with ‘minimalist’ composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich to photographic imagery — with the same fluid grace and delight in patterning found in that music.”

Peter Frank

OUT TAKES ON TIME: Panel Discussion

February 15th, 2015 — 4:22am

480  OUT TAKES ON TIME 2Time is an abstract construct. A cultural tradition. An in-between non-entity. Like the verb between two nouns, like the directional movement between a subject and an object, like the central dramatic act in a three act play. Contemporary linguistics tells us that time is expressed by using spatial metaphors and that spatial concepts are shaped by language. The physical sciences tell us that space and time are both elastic and interdependent…

What does a theoretical physicist have to say about this? And what if you ask an artist, a writer, a musician, an art critic, a filmmaker or an academic?

Time is an abstract construct. A cultural tradition. An in-between non-entity. It is a measurement, as in the time involved in passing between two places. It is like the space between two places. But space is volumetric, time is linear. It has just two dimensions. Time is like the verb between two nouns, like the directional movement between a subject and an object, like the central dramatic act in a three act play. The physical sciences tell us that space and time are both elastic and interdependent. Contemporary linguistics tells us that spatial concepts are shaped by language and that time is invariably expressed using spatial metaphors…

This exhibition presents twenty-one large format photographs by artist Jay Mark Johnson. They are selected from a decade long inquiry focusing on the possibilities for timeline photography.
Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot writes “Johnson’s pictures look nothing like the world as we know it, and they are not really meant to. Yet still, their brain-melting relationship to the truth remains unassailable. The best thing to do is just relax, and let art and science blow your mind.”
