Asad Faulwell / Chris Johanson

March 9, 2013 to June 16, 2013

Born in Indiana, now a resident of Los Angeles, Asad Faulwell’s intricate mixed-media art focuses on images of Algerian women, especially the freedom fighters who were involved in the 1954-1962 struggle to end French occupation. They are shown against highly-decorative floral and geometric patterns familiar in Middle Eastern art.

California-born Chris Johanson gained attention in the 2001 Whitney Biennial and has since been widely exhibited in this country and abroad. Johanson employs an exuberant color palette for simple and imperfect geometric shapes. According to Artforum, his “rough-hewn cartoon style” taps the late New Age Northern California style.
