HUB FURNITURE AND CARA JOHNSON


  • Hub Furniture 63 Exhibition Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

Hub Furniture and Craft present maker Cara Johnson.

Presenting a new body of works reflecting the environments they were cultivated from, Hub Furniture and Craft are pleased to present artist Cara Johnson.

Evidence of heavy-handedness on the landscape is what initially interested Johnson, marking the beginning of an exploration, but it is the unfolding of nature that keeps the artist invested in a place.

Johnson's research into the Victorian landscape keeps returning to the ground, the bush debris that blankets the red, brown, yellow dirt, and leaf litter in varying states of decay. Most of her works come from looking down, and thinking about the cyclic rhythms of nature.

Each of these works has spent time in the landscapes that they are derivative of, with the thought of returning materials to nature. Weather and time become visibly present, rust and rot creep in.

Showing these works in a window flooded with natural light will allow the colours of the pieces to shift throughout the day, as nature does.

Cara Johnson a current MFA Research Candidate at RMIT University in Melbourne and resides in the Otways, south-west Victoria, Australia.
