at Marty Walker Gallery through November 12

Marty Walker Gallery is nearly always on target with my taste and the exhibition
of Dion Johnson's abstract paintings is no exception.  I have been following this
gallery  from the night they opened their doors on Farrington Street and I have
been  impressed with the selection of artists in their stable and many of their
group exhibitions.

Johnson’s work uses attractive bright colors and the shapes are smooth and organic.
We  can recognize a sophisticated abstract work through a combination of colors and
his use of repetition without exactly repeating the shapes. Technique transference is
often times another clue to a successful abstract work.  Johnson manages to simulate
this serigraphic method of color change by allowing colors to appear transparent and
moving the colors through the objects.
