Project Description

LOCATION: Johns Creek Walk
SUMMARY: 

Splash is one of two works on display from Gregory Johnson, a Suwanee, Ga.-based artist who has, for the past 50 years, focused on figurative themes cast in stainless steel. With these works, Johnson says he chose not to focus on things we can see or are familiar with, such as a person. Rather, “I chose to depict elements we people feel, but cannot necessarily touch or quantify. The warmth of the sun, the secure and loving feeling of a Family, the strength of nature; these are just a few of the elements I’m touching on.” Says Johnson, “I am an artist whose work, for the past 50 years, has focused on figurative themes which have been cast in bronze and stainless steel. The current contemporary set of works is built upon the concepts of traditional works. With regard to the modern works, instead of sculpting things that we see and are familiar with, such as a person, I chose to depict elements we people feel, but cannot necessarily touch or quantify. The warmth of the sun, the secure and loving feeling of a Family, the strength of nature; these are just a few of the elements I’m touching on.

My sculpture is a metaphor that exceeds the physical presence of the work. It is less literal than much of the abstract work out there, and is somewhat reductive in its presentation. In these works, industrial created components are placed in a formal, yet irregular and lyrical juxtaposition, thus suggesting a transformation from utility to non-utility material.”
