In the Spring of 2013, Heather L Johnson came to BoxoHOUSE to undertake a residency. Her journey was somewhat unusual - she rode her motorcycle from Weehawken, NJ to Joshua Tree and back. Heather covered roughly 10,000 miles across the United States looking for "grand gestures made by humans in the landscape": strip mines, oil refineries, over-sized architectural projects, and other sites where evidence of humanity's impact on the land is palpable. At each location she left behind a hand-embroidered work of art for anyone to find, collect and keep. This year she brought her project, In Search of the Frightening and Beautiful, to Mexico with the hope of eventually taking it around the world. Heather is now based in the Joshua Tree area for a period and is pleased to present the completed works begun during her residency to the local community. The exhibition will feature images of pieces dropped in the landscape, watercolor impressions of her journey and hand-embroidered compositions based on experiences collected along the way.
Following its showing at BoxoHOUSE, the exhibition will continue to the University Gallery at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo from November 6 to December 5 2014. A blog (http://thefrighteningandbeautiful.blogspot.com) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/TheFrighteningAndBeautiful) record Heather's comings and goings with photographs, writings and GPS tracks for all to follow.
Heather L. Johnson (born 1969 in Wahiawa, HI) earned her Master of Fine Arts from California College of the Arts in 2001. She has mounted three solo shows at Kesting/Ray (NYC) and recently exhibited works from this project at Yam Gallery in San Miguel Allende, Mexico. Heather's work has also been seen in group shows at White Columns (NYC), Austin Museum of Art (TX), BoxoOFFICE (NYC) and in other galleries and museums around the United States, in Europe and in Japan. She has organized several exhibitions and collaborative projects, including Cracks in the Pavement: Gifts in the Urban Landscape, involving artists from around the world, and Love Letter, a collection of collaborative site-specific works presented in New York and Paris.
