Craft Victoria and búl are pleased to present Cara Johnson.

'Through my practice I am working to highlight the fragility and preciousness of nature while concurrently reflecting upon the heavy handedness of human impact. Agricultural and mining practices evidenced within the landscape are what initially interest me, marking the beginning of an exploration, but it is the gentle unfolding of nature that keeps me invested. 

Currently I am exploring how things I make allude to function connected to the landscape, while also narrating correspondences between material and place.'

- Cara Johnson

Presented at búl's new store in the Emporium, the collection of works installed, made from paper and paper pulp, rest somewhere in between the hard lines of human presence and the softening of going back to nature. The making process evolved through an ongoing lament on the source of paper.
