Glenys Johnson is an English artist whose recent "Wall Drawing" constitutes a change in her previous conceptual and theatrical work. The drawing, a composite of mutant feminine figures rendered directly on a plaster ground, refer to mythological, Early Christian and Pagan iconography. Johnson's play with the dislocation and temporalness of negative/positive imagery dramatizes the metaphor of a personal hesitancy and loss of control. Johson presents her images as signs of vulnerability. A variant of this installation was recently shown at Lisson Gallery in London.
