Untamed by Jaime Johnson
LUBBOCK– Landmark Arts of Texas Tech University’s School of Art presents the photographs of Jaime Johnson as the seventh exhibition in the 2014 – 2015 SRO Photo Gallery exhibition series. Untamed is on display from April 13 to May 10, 2015.
Jamie Johnson’s photographic series Untamed chronicles the intimate relationship of a “wild woman” and her surrounding natural environment. The woman wears the bones, branches, butterflies, and flora of her world and treads with the animals, both dead and living. The monochrome of Johnson’s photographs shifts focus from potentially colorful landscapes and figures to patterns, textures, and the relationships of forms within the images. Printed on fragile Japanese Kitakata paper, the photographs also maintain a translucent, ethereal quality. Simultaneously, Untamed reflects upon the forms, the impermanence, and the interconnectedness of nature’s life.
Jamie Johnson is an MFA student in photography at Louisiana Tech University where she is also an Instructor of Record in photography. She exhibits nationally.
