Johnnie Winona Ross: Bean Creek Seeps

September 9 - October 9, 2022

Opening Reception Tonight, 5-7 P.M.

Created with a quiet care and attention to detail, what goes into the physical building of these paintings is as important to Ross as the images they convey. Using handmade copper tacks to stretch his specially textured linen canvas over basswood stretcher bars, these sensual details - always visible at the edges of the painting - form a kind of anchor for the viewer. While these breathing, complex, white and color-woven paintings open up an almost three-dimensional space, create a similar sort of multi-dimensional, multisensory, and potentially even synesthetic experience as music can - their job is not to take you somewhere else, you are not supposed to forget that this is a painting on a wall - their job is to bring you right here. To the space and time of now. Into your body, into the gallery, into the experience of being present with a particular piece of art, in a particular moment, and a particular kind of light.
