"Coil Closed Net" Wall-Mounted Coiled Cotton Fiber Sculpture by Doug Johnston

$6,500

About

-Made in 2014 -cotton cord, sewing thread, wood wall mount This piece was made by coiling a single length of cotton cord, and repetitively and discretely sewing the coil together with an industrial sewing machine. The cord is raw cotton and is sewn with red and navy blue sewing thread. The piece undulates in relief from the wall, and the excess sewing thread is left intact lending detail and texture. This piece was originally part of the "Brooklyn Nets" solo exhibition at Aberson Exhibits in Tulsa, OK in 2014 and has been included in several group exhibitions around the USA from 2015-2019. Since 2010 Doug Johnston has produced a wide range of functional and sculptural objects using a process of coiling and stitching rope using industrial sewing machines. He has built a formal vocabulary and studio practice that engages his varied interests in architecture, spatial and landscape formation, commerce, and fundamental human technologies. The work often sits at the intersection of art, design, and craft, taking the position that no made object is exclusively aesthetic or utilitarian. He often collaborates with his partner, Tomoe Matsuoka. They live and work in Brooklyn, NY and Osaka, Japan.

About the Maker

Doug Johnston

Since 2010 Doug Johnston has focused on a process of coiling and stitching rope using industrial sewing machines, producing a wide range of functional and sculptural objects. The work utilizes a long history of human technologies such as cordage, coiled vessels, bags and basketry, masonry construction, sewing machines, and 3d printing. With these, he has built a formal vocabulary and studio practice that engages his varied interests in architecture, spatial and landscape formation, commerce, and fundamental human technologies. The work often sits at the intersection of art, design, and craft, taking the position that no made object is exclusively aesthetic or utilitarian. Johnston has shown his work at venues such as Patrick Parrish Gallery (NY), R & Company (NY), Cranbrook Art Museum (MI), Haystack Mountain School of Crafts (ME), Collective Design Fair (NY), and Design/Miami (FL). He has participated in residencies at UrbanGlass, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. He received a Master of Architecture degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Drury University. Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Johnston lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and Osaka, Japan, often collaborating with his wife, artist and designer Tomoe Matsuoka.
