Me and You in the Cosmic Stew

Central Hong Kong
Open: Tuesday – Saturday, 11 AM – 7 PM

Over The Influence is pleased to present Me and You in the Cosmic Stew, a solo exhibition with Aaron Johnson

This new series of paintings vibrate with ethereal figures that dissolve into hazes of disembodied color, juicy luminosity, and radiant blurs. His fluid approach to painting is rooted in the tradition of Color Field painting, working on the floor staining the raw canvas with washes of color, allowing spontaneity and unpredictability to drive the compositions. This is a show in 2 parts: in the lower gallery, large and medium paintings that depict gatherings of ethereal figures, and in the upper gallery a series of intimate scaled otherworldly portraits.
