The Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery has organized the first one-person museum exhibition of Los Angeles artist, Larry Johnson. Johnson’s work is a hybrid of photography, text, animation, graphic design and painting. His works investigate American language by zeroing in on the bizarre epiphanies and cruel despair of a new consciousness created by the totalization of consumer culture. The work is beautiful and polemical. Johnson’s work offers a caustic view of American reality from a queer perspective.
