The Sculptures by J. Seward Johnson, Jr.
•Presented at the Captain James and Emma Holt White House and Proponent Federal Credit Union, Burlington, NC
Seward Johnson’s Impressionist-inspired sculptures arouse attention and interest due to the exacting unexpected three-dimensional interpretation of well known nineteenth-century masterpieces. This series marks a thematic departure from the American sculptor’s well-known celebration of the person on the street; for now he brings – literally – an additional dimension to the Impressionist icons of art history, tapping into our memories of these familiar images and encouraging us to take a closer look.
