The work of Sarah Anne Johnson (b. 1976 Winnipeg, Canada) playfully, but pointedly bridges the real and the imagined; factual and fictive; lived and desired. She works from a bravely personal perspective that reflects her growing concerns for the world, combined with the pursuit of a utopian place that remains tantalizingly out of reach. At every step Johnson attempts to nudge reality closer to her ideals, supplementing quixotic photographs with humble dioramas, Sculpey figurines, painterly interludes, handcrafted doll-houses and a dizzying array of modifications performed upon the photograph itself. As a whole, WONDERLAND presents the first opportunity to trace the continuity and inspiring evolution of this artist’s practice. The exhibit is curated by: Steven Matijcio, Curator, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati.
