Canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson uses photography, sculpture, installation. and performance to explore complicated personal histories, environmental realities. and an unsustainable idealism. Ranging from the intimate to the overwhelming, Johnson constructs worlds haunted by memory and fringed with optimism.

In her series ‘Arctic Wonderland,’ Johnson creates a world of science fiction, envisioning a dystopian future by painting, digitally manipulating and embossing photographs. Large, geometric structures loom on the horizon, atmospheric bubbles enclose cities, and the sun is obscured as the apocalypse draws near. Johnson reflects on the sublime through a shuddering view of the future.

Sarah Anne Johnson has exhibited extensively, both nationally and internationally, including the Guggenheim in New York, the AGO in Toronto, and Mass MoCA in North Adams. Her work has been published and reviewed in the New York Times, Art Forum, New York Magazine and the Village Voice.

Johnson’s work is held in the collections of the Guggenheim and the Yale University Art Gallery and she is represented by the Julie Saul Gallery in New York City, and the Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto.

Johnson received her MFA from Yale University in 2004.

Lydia Anne McCarthy and Scott Alario will give a Gallery Talk on Wednesday, February 12th at noon. All events are free and open to the public.

The artists in the exhibition re-imagine the Nordic landscape, using photography to create alternate realities that both dazzle and quietly threaten. Inspired by the stark environment, extremes of dark and light, folklore, personal history and contemporary culture, each artist eschews the bounds of the traditional photograph in exchange for an experimental, manipulated approach, constructing place and disorienting the viewer. While the tools used are varied, each artist’s work alludes to the uncertainty of our present moment and its convergence with the past.

The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery is located on the third floor of Harder Hall on the Alfred University campus. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 11am to 4pm, and 1-3pm on Saturday and Sunday. For more information about this show or upcoming events visit the website at: fosdicknelson.alfred.edu or contact Director, Sharon McConnell at mcconnells@alfred.edu.
