Erotica at Domy Books Dec. 18

Titties, dawg...

Do you remember how hard it was to see that schooner in those goddamn magic eye pieces? Did the abstraction of what is supposed to be a concrete image interest you beyond the algorhythm used to produce those images? If so, I’ve got something for you. Namely, the works of Magnus Johnstone on Display Domy Books right next to Brasil Café. With content ranging from the abstraction of erotica in acrylics to manga-esque visions of a surreal futurism, one can find anything from dirigible’s reminiscent of a future that never was to  the interplay between militarism and the female form in his works. It’s more than interesting. Aside from all that, THERE”S FOOD AND ART! DOOOOOO IIIIIIIITTTTTT! Get your read, art and feast on. Side note, the food is next door and costs money, but it’s delish. And there is a fine selection of coffee, local and Belgian beers and wines to accompany your self-journey into a complex world of artistic enlightenment.

AND NOW, a little about the artist; born in the South Side of Chicago, the influence of the city’s rich architectural history can be seen in the landscapes also found in his art. Eventually finding himself amidst the Boston Art Collective Punkt/Data. The name of the collective belies the effect of the Jungle music he spins during radio (which still broadcasts in Maine) has had on his art. The mixing of imagery and media suggests a complex appreciation of the artistic experience and content which he displays. Exact details of the show can be found below:
