The publication documents an exhibition of long-time Houston artist Lucas Johnson. A self-taught artist who migrated to Mexico in the 1950s, Johnson attained artistic maturity in the social, political and cultural atmosphere of Mexican surrealism. The exhibition presents 22 drawings executed from 1993 and 1994 that used the northern Idaho landscape to evoke fantastic, otherworldly imagery. Includes an essay by Carla Stellwig and documentation on the artist’s career.
(Exhibition on view December 3, 1994 – January 15, 1995)
