William Turner Gallery Presents Jay Mark Johnson’s “No Such Place”:

William Turner Gallery presents “NO SUCH PLACE” – recent works by Jay Mark Johnson this Saturday, Feb. 23 through March 30.

An opening reception will be held opening day at the gallery from 6-8 pm at 2525 Michigan Ave. E1 (Bergamot Station), Santa Monica.

Initiated in 2005, these monumental color photographs, including a 30-foot-long triptych, follow the migrations of people and their vehicles across attenuated landscapes and saturated terrains from the dockyards of Singapore and the rice paddies of Cambodia to the dairy farms of Australia and the populated centers of Rome, Prague, Hamburg, Hong Kong, and Los Angeles.

This exhibition takes viewers on a fantastical journey where nothing is as it seems.

Shadows are crisscrossed and the relative speed of an object determines its size.

Moving bodies appear isolated from their backgrounds and the backdrops themselves have been obliterated.

In this manner, the results of Johnson’s process become a metaphor for his own investigation.

For more information, call 310.453.0909 or visit williamturnergallery.com.
