Justin W. John

With his new exhibit at UpCycle on Eighth Street in Downtown Boise, artist Justin W. John questions just about everything, from memories and symbols to the very idea of perception. If the question, “What is reality?” has been niggling at the back of your mind—and really, who hasn’t wondered at some point—this selection of polaroid photographs and acrylic paintings might help you scratch the itch. “I try to emulate human response and emotion to communicate when words seem so hard to find,” wrote John on the Facebook page for the exhibit, which will run through Saturday, June 30. “I can not control potential absurd distortions, obvious metaphors, assumed context, (un)perceived reality or dreams of hyperreality. That’s up to you.” Stop by UpCycle to take the plunge into the unknown and check out John’s solo debut.
