The Craig Gallery

Exhibition from 
Jan 11- 28, 2018

Marley Johnson will exhibit his new painting series at the Craig Gallery until January 28, 2018.

From the Craig Gallery's website: 
Artist statement: My paintings investigate the agency of colour through a vibrant, messy and precarious sensibility. These works are suggestive landscapes, investigating the inner exploration of indexical mark making, working with a formal and vital approach, I have been influenced by modes of expressionism, experimenting with its potential. The shapes and contours implies a playfulness, exuberance, and a sense of effervescence or froth which forms in-between the push//pull of tides. By breaking down the impression of the gestures, leaving it raw and undefined I hope to reveal something transparent about the process of painting and color.

Bio: Marley Johnson completed his BFA at NSCAD university in 2015, he also studied at Cooper Union in New York City on an exchange. Upon graduating Marley was awarded a residency in Lunenburg NS, where he spent a year working within a ceramics community. During that year he also received a Talent Trust scholarship. Marley is currently doing his MFA at Concordia university in Montreal.
