Kerri Johnson and her wooden sky

Kerri Johnson’s show, up now at the Compound Gallery, is a deceptively simple show. I saw it for the first time at the opening and I can’t get it out of my head. Take for instance, the piece above: the lines are not drawn so much as burned into the wood. This strange boat, with a house and a horse’s head, like a living thing, bobbing adrift with no shore in sight, stubborn, lost and joyful under a wooden sky.
