What is the true measure of art? Is it the catchy compilation of materials, or the whacky imagination of the artist’s mind that sets his design apart from the lot? It’s really difficult to find an answer for this superfluous question. Stephen Johnson’s ‘Now Isn’t That Lovely’ series of brass sculptures are designed to give sleepless nights to all those critics of art who like to go overboard in their attempt to classify the beauty of art into categories.
Johnson has used the tough metal to create a sequence of ornaments which cling together in a gravity-defying position. Each sculpture features a unique combination of unrelated objects ranging from a perched eagle to a hibernating cat. Each design is a ticket to the surreal world of art, where there is no place for logic or certainty.
