DEEP OAKLAND PERSON

Johnna Arnold

Johnna Arnold explores the relationship with reality as captured by the lens of a camera. The arresting and mesmerizing images are specific to the Bay Area freeway system, an unpredictable place in-between places. Colors, details and focal planes are presented as sequential moments in time within a vertical triptych format. The blurred images abstract many details and filter out the chaos of the actual place, and in doing so become a discourse not only on what we see, but the way we see it. Her photography has been exhibited and reviewed widely in the SF Bay Area, including Traywick Gallery, SF Camerawork, Kala Art Institute, Southern Exposure, the SF Art Institute, and Mills College. In 2004, she was the receipient of the Cadogan Fellowship Award, sponsored by the San Francisco Foundation.
