Johanna Mueller: Oct. Featured Artist
For the month of October, we will be featuring new work from engraver and printmaker Johanna Mueller.
Mueller's work delves into the shared histories of humans, as told by animals. These compositions are full of animals within animals, a reference to animal cognition and spirits within animal bodies. Personal narrative is woven with ancestral, tribal, Biblical, mythical symbols and stories which make these pieces both familiar and challenging. Animals have no race, religion, or creed, can be as easily feminine as masculine or somewhere in between. Therefore, they can tell universal stories which weave anthropology, art history, and spirituality – our shared humanness – better than their human counterparts. In our ever changing and sometimes frightful present day, we need to be reminded of the universality of all things, including the human race.
Johanna will also be doing a demo of her process on the night of Oct 15th from 4-7pm, so come by to see how she creates her intricate and enchanting pieces.
