The Best Thing You’ve Never Seen – Johanna Warwick, The Weight of the World, 2012
The Best Thing You’ve Never Seen enacts notions of both literal and figurative support by featuring the work of emerging artist Johanna Warwick. Warwick’s large-scale photographs, which capture overlooked architectural details and vantage points, are installed in unexpected locations throughout the Gladstone. The constructed and fragmented panoramas illustrate ceilings, joists and lighting fixtures of various buildings. By calling attention to these skeletal building elements, Warwick’s work points to the most direct, yet frequently overlooked, structures of support within the gallery environment. Situated in the cyclical social context of a hotel– and calling attention to the Gladstone’s recent history of renovations- these images evoke the regenerative capacity of artistic support.
Johanna Warwick is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design MFA Photography 2010, and Ryerson University BFA in photography 2006. She is a British born, Canadian raised photographer now working and living in Boston, MA. She has exhibited in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles and other major cities across North America.
