Ann Johnson wants to have face-to-face conversation. This installation resembles an outdoor park. Visitors are invited to sit and discuss words in her tree sculptures such as Ferguson and immigration. Johnson brings her experimental process that includes intaglio on sycamore leaves, text prints, transparencies and found objects. She addresses African American genealogy, folklore and legacy. Her delicate sensitivity to texture & uniquely combined elements create moments that feel intimate while simultaneously addressing broad social issues. Johnson’s exhibit will entice and provoke.
