Not that I’m trying to advertise competitive books here, but this one is a must! You should still order Out and About immediately cause these two books look great together on the coffee table. That said, This Thursday night, 6-8pm at Dashwood Books in New York, Ari will be signing copies of a limited edition book he just released that is one of the most beautiful things ever produced.

Chris Johanson
March 8 - April 12, 2008
Opening reception: Saturday, March 8th, 6-9pm

“The show is about how I am 39 years old and how all this time went into making right now. The pictures in the show start at age 24 and go to age 39 at 6pm on March 8th, 2008. It is about human communication dealing with dealing through paint. It is about personal mind control as a coping mechanism to be better at co-existence. About language to communicate in order to know of serenity. It is about cancer, death. Life. Serenity. Life. Order. Chaos. Recycle. Health food. Life. Bright colors not to draw an insect to a flame to be harmed but show possibility. Its about unfinished business and the inability to do everything. All things. Endless choices. Serenity there. Animal, plant, insect. The main reason I had to do this is this is my daily ritual to make pictures is to contemplate life and death, world and place is part of my religion. It is true. I believe. Sooner or later both ways all the time.” — Chris Johanson
