Following its greatest artist response to date, Four Arts today announces Ian Johnson as the artist selected for its Autumn 2011 show.
Artist Ian Johnson was selected for his ‘Reflective paintings’ series. The exhibition, ‘Collidescope’, will be on display from early September until November in the fourth show in the agency’s Leicester Square offices.
Ian Johnson, a professional artist based in East London, creates striking reflective works on mirrored aluminium that provide a comment on the ever-increasing human presence and impact on the urban and natural landscape. ‘Collidescope’ will showcase a number of Ian’s ‘Reflector paintings’, which use mirror-polished aluminium panels as surfaces onto which machine and hand-cut printed vinyl stickers are applied.
Rachel Clarke, Head of Arts, said ‘We were delighted with the quality and volume of submissions that we received but Ian’s mirrored aluminium pieces were too exciting for our panel to resist. Each piece reflects the room in which it hangs and invites the viewer to become an integral part of the experience of the overall work. We hope this show will provide enjoyment and inspiration for all those who visit our offices.
