Plums in Jar
Stephen Johnstonís recent paintings have focused on reinterpreting still life: food slowly decaying in glass jars, burnt bottles and a bowl full of roadkill offer a plethora of emotional responses. These vivid images reveal how the artist sees all still life as an inherent comment on death. The Old Masters also made this social commentary through Vanitas, often setting up luxurious scenes garnished with riches and Foods. These materialistic icons were undermined by a sense of fleeting momentariness. Interested in presenting subject matter in an unfamiliar wag, Johnston deconstructs objects from their recognizable connotations and builds new relationships with the meanings they once held.
