Glowlab is pleased to present Air and Blood, a solo exhibition of works by Heather L. Johnson featuring a new series of drawings and embroideries along with a text-based installation that will be situated within the gallery and the surrounding neighborhood.
Glowlab will host a reception for the artist on Thursday, October 8, 2009 from 7-9 pm.
Johnson’s new body of work fixates on the circulatory nature of urban movement. Air and Blood references the connection that urban inhabitants, either transient or permanent, have with overarching public transportation systems. Using the Holland Tunnel as a point of departure, the artist investigates the way in which anatomical processes are mimicked in the transfer of people, objects and ideas in the urban environment.
