Alfred University director of Foundations Mary Johnson has solo exhibition in South Korea

Mary Johnson, director of Foundations in Alfred University’s School of Art and Design, had artwork in a solo exhibition in South Korea in September.

Johnson’s work, “Caricatures,” was on view at CICA Museum in Gimpo, South Korea from Sept. 20-24.

The work is a series of drawings and collages on paper, which depict figures and landscapes hybridized from American mythology, contemporary culture, and the classic swashbuckling tale, Journey to the West.” Superimposed upon one another in ways that make them unrecognizable as individuals, their redundant qualities became doubled in a way that makes them archetypes.
