michael johansson: still life
the flat gallery, milan
on now through to the 23rd of february, 2013

 

swedish artist michael johansson has created a series of artworks fabricated though arranging common items into an organized, tetris-like format –
showing at the flat gallery in milan, italy. considering color and form – johansson produces structures that depict an almost perfect cube,
textured throughout with various hues and materials. the playful pieces presents the audience with recognizable objects in a new light,
altering their meaning outside of their original quotidian context.
