Robb Johnson (Whitney's Post)
My artist of the week is Robb Johnson. I chose him because his work is somewhat related to mine in that his images expose the physicality of photography by making the grain very apparent, but he isn't currently working in digital, so I don't know to what extent the images are manipulated. He also works with shadows and other ways of creating layers in his images, something I've been working towards myself.
Robb Johnson's photos compliment Marcus Harvey's paintings nicely. Both artists' images expose the materiality of their chosen medium and both work with abstracted, layered images.
