Jeremiah Johnson, a printmaking instructor at Lycoming College, will present his first solo exhibition, "Never Enough," Feb. 7 -14 in the Kostabi World Gallery Space at 514 W. 24th St., New York City.
Some 20 works on paper, mylar and a series of prints by Johnson skewer the artist's notions about love, relationships, sex and even heaven in an American society that he sees as rapidly coming undone.
My work touches upon a psychedelic aesthetic from the late '60s and early '70s, but what I'm really interested in is the dissemination of information in an overcharged and oversexed world," Johnson said. "In another sense, my work is about survival."
