“Alan Johnston’s work is, at times, almost invisible – but almost is not invisible at all. At a time when our lives are saturated by commodified images, looking at a simple drawing that relies so much on what we, as viewers bring to it, becomes a test not just of our perception but of our whole system of value. What we see how we see it and even whether we register it all are consciously determined – a mirror of our private self in a way – and a measure of our understanding of order, space and structure. It is the economical way in which this act of self – awareness is achieved that make Johnston’s work so extraordinary and effective.”



Did anyone go to this talk?
