Installation View: Color Our of Space

Kysa Johnson was born in Illinois, trained at Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, and now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Rooted in scientific theory, her paintings and installations explore biological, physical, and astronomical extremes in order to probe our metaphysical limits. She has exhibited widely, including with Morgan Lehman Gallery, Halsey McKay, Roebling Hall Gallery, 0-0 LA, The Pit LA, ESXLA, Kunsthalle Projects, and institutions such as the National Academy of Science and The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work has been written about in The New York Times, Hyperallergic, Interview Magazine, VICE, Artforum.com, Artinfo, Wallpaper, Wall Street International, and Fabrik Magazine, among others. She is a 2003 NYFA fellow, and a 2009 Pollack Krasner Grant recipient.
