Joseph Janson: Solo Show . November 2-December 1, 2019
Janson expertly manipulates the wire into subtle shapes alluding to the human figure. What appears to at first be a tangle of wire quickly reveals itself to be face, a hand, a foot. The pieces seem to dance between two and three dimensions as they cast shadows on the wall, further complicating as well as explaining their form.
Janson is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute and was lead preparator at the Austin Museum of Art. He continues to live and work in Austin, Texas.
