A Partial Overlap

10 March 2023 - 16 April 2023

A Partial Overlap

Dr. Rhi Johnson

Rhi Johnson, Oversight (detail), 2021, Reduction Linocut, 28.5 x 29.5cm.

A Partial Overlap draws on the convergence of lived experience, memory, and intuitive response. Through reduction linocut printing processes, Rhi Johnson explores urban, natural, and combined sites of personal significance. The resultant works are not a direct visual interpretation of the sites depicted but map a kind of tension between the experience of place and subsequent cognitive processes.

Dr. Rhi Johnson is a Toowoomba based artist and educator who works primarily in the fields of Printmaking, Artist’s Books and Mixed Media art. She is interested in the formation of everyday narratives, and how these can be disrupted or subverted visually. Rhi investigates visual cues that can punctuate an environment, object or space of perceived meaning, and in doing so, may allude to subconscious methods of processing information. She is currently lecturing in Printmaking at the University of Southern Queensland. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and has works in print collections across Australia.
