For his first exhibition at the Mies van der Rohe Haus - Landhaus Lemke, Johnston created a series of new works on panels that reference the proportions of bricks that make up the structural framework of this exceptional building.

A series of site specific wall-drawings will complete the installation, these are closely related to the artists practice and his earlier wall-drawing at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, another seminal Mies van der Rohe building.

The works shown relate closely with Johnston’s interest in the work of Patrick Geddes ‘Philosophical Generalism’, and the notion of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’.
