Dept. of Deliberation & Obfuscation

Philip Johnston
Philip Johnston is a Los Angeles and New York based artist. During a 30 year career he has explored Monumental Clay sculpture, Encaustic sculptural painting, and Cyanotype prints. His work themes are predominantly environmental. 
“This recent series of work explores my long fascination with Geology. Employing high-elevation perspectives I interpret the phenomena resulting from Earth’s constantly shifting landmasses. Tectonic migrations along “Convergent Plates” trigger abrupt movement. These converging plates forcefully collide initiating energy displacements that create subterranean structures and underground worlds where volcanoes intersect and co-exist with rock-encased oceans; ruptures, tunnels, barriers and sharpened ridges become the off-spring of these events. 
I explore the sculptural potential of Encaustic wax. The energetic quality (sometimes violent), of creating multiple layers of interactive wax. Disparate layers are brushed, poured, compressed, gouged, sectioned off, occasionally scraped back with a garden saw; and then built up again. For me, sculptural encaustic painting is a muscular physical experience akin to those layered earth plates. Moving in concert until they collide and create a new effect.”

I create hand-crafted photographs using historical techniques such as wet plate collodion, salted paper prints, calotypes, and other processes from the dawn of photography. Whether crafting portraits, or depicting scenes from the natural world, my intent is to express something beyond that which is in front of my lens.

In addition to photography, I paint and create collage works from my original mono prints and drawings. By deconstructing and recombining these source materials, fresh and unexpected arrangements emerge. Inspired by a rootedness in the western landscape, my collages are meditations on a spiritual connection to place and it’s transformative nature.

Lily King
As an artist I have been creating pottery and shooting film for over 25 years, waxing and waning between the two. I have an education in both mediums, but am mostly self-taught. Some of my inspirations are: form in nature, The Japanese principles of Wabi Sabi as well as the hard lines of Brutalist architecture. I have been published in the LA Times, Elle Decor UK and others. I have worked with collectors and boutiques worldwide, and  my work is frequently chosen by interior designers for their clients.
