REVIEW: James Buss in

November 11, 2016 - Todd Camplin

Some might claim that art has no purpose or say that art has no real value, but these are delusional ideas. In moments of emotional turmoil, art can speak to an individual in an immeasurable way. People desire to view or possess this experience, which gives  the images power. Art can be just entertaining, but great art also informs, nudges people towards ideas or big questions, and helps heal or transcend this world’s problems if only for a moment...

PRESS RELEASE: Dion Johnson- Optic Energy

November 10, 2016 - Holly Johnson Gallery

Johnson’s paintings and works on paper combine and explore dynamic opposites: expansiveness and compression, darkness and light. Johnson’s intuitive use of color evokes the contemporary urban, digital and natural landscape, and skews the vocabulary of abstraction into a hybrid techno-language...

INTERVIEW: Christopher French in Romanov Grave

October 16, 2016 - Janet Goleas

Christopher French creates minimalist abstractions infused with memory, light and a degree of perception that extends beyond sight. His radiant geometries reference a landscape of light and shadows in precise compositions. Layering pigment in thin veils, French crisscrosses shafts of color as they traverse the image field in crystalline tonalities...

REVIEW: James Buss in Arts+Culture Texas

October 6, 2016 - John Zotos

Artist and Fort Worth native James Buss lived and worked for many years in Los Angeles after completing an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts.  Recently returned to Texas, his solo exhibition at Holly Johnson Gallery, through Nov. 12,  highlights a spare and evanescent aesthetic vision in over 15 small-scale, abstract monochromatic black paintings.  These curious pieces are realized through a type of poured plaster impression technique, and exude a quiet ontological meditation capturing visual traces, memory and the nature of perception...

REVIEW: James Buss at Site 131 in The Dallas Morning News

August 26, 2016 - Rick Brettell

When Gavin Delahunty called in every chip he had to secure global loans for the extraordinary "Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots" at the Dallas Museum of Art last spring, the exhibition was like a bolt of lightning in Dallas.

Collectors, critics, historians and just plain cultural tourists flocked to Dallas from all over the world. Lectures were given. Artists opined in studios and at a dinner parties. And the city reveled in the world's recognition of the brilliance not only of Pollock, but of the power of Dallas and the DMA in the new world of art...

REVIEW: It's Official in

August 11, 2016 - Todd Camplin

Summer is where group shows rule the day. Often times you will see a mixture of artists in the gallery’s stable. Instead of browsing their website, you can see some of this work live. One example is Erin Cluley Gallery’s show. When I visited this week I found that she had the majority of her artists hanging in the gallery. Some galleries have a slightly more focused group show, like Barry Whistler Gallery’s works on paper show. The theme of course is paper. Though I enjoyed this show a great deal, I would bet their exhibition of photos of dogs by William Wegman would be a huge draw. Holly Johnson Gallery has taken a bit different take on the group show. She has a show that features artists with significant accomplishments over the past few years...
