Ian Johnson

Of The Living Sky

Opening Reception: Friday April 2nd, 7-10pm

April 2nd – May 1st

Park Life is pleased to announce the opening of Ian Johnson’s newest exhibition of drawings and paintings titled, Of The Living Sky. This show will feature works on paper and wood panel. The show will run from April 2nd – May 1st.

The notable aspect of jazz comes from musician’s ability to improvise within an established framework. Ian Johnson’s art on the same subject is no different. His well-practiced work combines realistic and highly detailed portraits of great jazz musicians, with the confident abstraction of color and shape as a constantly shifting background rhythm. Sun Ra, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and Anthony Braxton, among others, are depicted in a manner that emphasizes the sometimes joyous, sometimes melancholy, but always thoughtful nature of jazz.
