Unfolding across the mega-gallery’s two London spaces are a series of newly unveiled paintings and ceramic tile mosaics that explore Johnson’s recurring themes of anxiety of escapism, which have become all-too-timely in today’s sociopolitical climate. Among the new works is a collection of sculptural paintings in which Johnson replaces the canvas with a mosaic of fractured glazed ceramics—a continuation of his decade-spanning Broken Men and Broken Crowd series. Look closely, and one can discern renderings of wild, agitated, and cathartic human figures that meditate on notions of identity in the midst of shifting social realities.
