An exploration of density and perception using color, material and spatial shifts.

Marta Johansen creates stunning black & white, repetitive-line drawings of abstract shapes and their resultant negative space. For this installation Marta is pushing the envelope of her typical artistic practice to bring her interests into new territory. She will be experimenting in-situ with unique materials, presenting three-dimensional drawing surfaces within the gallery. The exercise will call into question and reshape the methods with which she normally works. In so doing, the site-specific drawings will stimulate and inspire the viewing experience.
