Johnna Arnold

From Inside This Earth

April 18 - June 1, 2019

Arnold’s work revolves around human beings and the environments we build. She investigates the interconnectedness among built systems, nature and our daily lives, drawing us to discover beauty in the commonplace and reminding us to cultivate change. Johnna’s work involves her interest in the infrastructure that supports our post-industrial lifestyle, and how she can relate to this vast system.

Using a cameraless technique Arnold employs the englarger like a microscope, creating a unique analog chromogenic print enlarging individual samples of used motor oil. Details are magnified and colors inverted, taking a repugnant substance and turning it into dreamscapes.
