Paul Johnston Artist’s Talk – Sunday, August 24 @ 11am

Join us for an artist’s talk with Paul Johnston, a Toronto/Stratford based artist who has been working in narrative found object assemblage sculpture and conceptual photography for forty years. After opening his first studio, in 1979, in what was then a desolate warehouse district of Toronto, he unknowingly went on to be one of the punk artist architects of what is now Queen West or Toronto’s Entertainment District. Moving to Stratford in 2006 he opened his studio “The Plant” and launched his company “Broken Circus”. His work is a narrative of our mortal coil, sometimes playful, sometimes acrid, a complex pulp fiction of what it is to be human, presented in found object assemblage sculpture.
