Thinking, Staring & Smoking | Robert Pokorny solo exhibition 

“Contemporary and very Pokorny, Thinking, Staring & Smoking – is a grand green-eyed and sausage nosed stare into the revelations and comforts of being stuck together, joint in hand, drink near, and hopefully – luckily for Mr. Pokorny – a beloved wife and dog to share the wearying into the nights.” - A response...by Garrett M. Brown

Johansson Projects presents Thinking, Staring, & Smoking, Robert Pokorny’s new show opening July 31, 2021. In-person reception 1-4pm

Artist ( Description ): 

I use portraiture as a device through which a dialogue is opened between the artist and viewer, the artist and the outside world. Portrait as an expression of myself, the practice of the studio, the intentional dialogue between my own vision and great painters from the past. Color and form are used to describe and initiate feeling. Each mark is packed with foresight and intention. Questions about humanity, diversity, discord and balance in society are communicated through my process of abstraction. Portraits that do not convey one person in particular but perhaps pictures of us all — the rich diversity of human dialogue, the moments of deep conflict, the pleasure of pure harmony.
