Justin Craun: Pieces

About

One in the Other is pleased to present the work of New York artist Justin Craun in his first UK solo exhibition.

Craun's work depicts seemingly familiar everyday subjects; these are then rendered in dense optical arrangements that are at once vivid and illusory. The paintings employ an irregular sense of composition, riffled and pitted surfaces, oscillating colour and saturation. Craun's latest take on American society is focused on the 'team', the 'cheerleader' and the 'family'. Idiosyncratic cornerstones of a North American values franchise. Craun's paintings subvert the brand whilst simultaneously knitting together jarring colour schemes, skewed geometric abstraction and patinated texture.

His drawings employ razor-sharp line work, luminous washes and concentrated areas of broken patterning. He locates the figures in spaces that are simultaneously flat and three-dimensional. Depicted with equal parts humor and dread, Craun's work is quotidian, disturbing and rich in a dislocated vocabulary of mark making.
