Colin Johnson, Mystic Flora
Colin Johnson gets a lot of attention for his larger, intensely detailed pieces like Big Numbers, Heart & Teeth, Effloresce or others because they’re hand done and stunning. I really don’t like that word, “stunning.” The point is that they are what they are, which is impressive. Now, though, Colin has added three new pieces to his TTP collection that show a side of him less obvious in those other bigger pieces.
Colin Johnson, Pulse
They show a side fascinated in nature and science and the peculiarities deep within. Some of his other TTP pieces, like Division or Many the Root hint at nature and the sort of cellular motifs you see in Mystic Flora, above, or the combination of sci-fi and crazy neuron looking biological graph stuff like in Pulse and Vernal Bloom. Either way, when you take the body of Colin’s TTP work and combine the big detailed pieces with the natural and sort of mysterious pieces you get a fascinating picture: An oeuvre of examination and wit. Dope.
