Johansson Projects presents In the Flesh, a solo exhibition of works by Andrew Catanese. Amidst stars twinkling in the night sky, a figure with the torso of a human and the head of a frog stands deep in thought, contemplating the blending of the natural world and the canvas. Holding a paintbrush, the anthropomorphized frog reveals itself to be the artist in the piece titled Portrait of the Artist as a Frog. It is fitting for the artist to consider themself in this form, as the body of work that makes up Andrew Catanese’s first solo exhibition with Johansson Projects ponders the barriers of the human and animal world, as well as those of the pastoral and sublime, and of day and night. The exhibition, In the Flesh, opens January 6 and runs through February 25, and comprises new paintings, sculptures and an editioned zine. Read more…
