Maryalice Johnston - Visual Artist

The delicate power of this work is that it is capable of rearranging our sense of beauty. Beauty's feared complicity with dominant systems of establishment aesthetics is nowhere to be found. This is a kind of post-political beauty, beauty of the commonplace, beauty of the everyday and the incidental beauty of individual experience as it takes in the world around us. Absent are the oppositional and dissident overtones of Fluxus. And present is the realization that the world can still be transformed in small ways and in neighboring places.
