Luke Johnson

Luke Johnson is an artist based in Edmonton working across print, installation, and durational engagements. He received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a focus in print media, and is currently working toward his MFA at the University of Alberta. His artwork deals with hierarchies of knowledge and the way in which ‘truth’ and value are delineated from the subjective and often considered discardable. Through processes of collecting, reconfiguring, and reordering materials, his work challenges the belief that documents and artifacts are intrinsically bastions of singular truth, and suggests instead that they complicate efforts to categorize and objectify, to define and to know.
