Gael Stack: Thistle

Holly Johnson Gallery

November 22 - December 20, 2014

An artist whose work evokes both memory and the "gaps, sinkholes, and other chasms" found in our experiences, Gael Stack is one of the most accomplished American painters working today. In Thistle, her large canvases and smaller drawings use fragments of words and images, often layered over one another like a palimpsest, to create a visual language that explores the past's implacable hold on the present, with what is unknown and unspoken occasionally poking through.

Mike Osborne: Monopoly

Holly Johnson Gallery

October 11 - December 20, 2014

Mike Osborne’s Monopoly translates the game board's Mondrian-like map into photographs that grapple with the Atlantic City's complicated past and present. His conversion of the game into representations of actual places is absurd but serious, a means of reflecting on the problems that have plagued many American cities over the last half-century.
