The art of Ezra Johnson contains something that binds it to reality. A mattress becomes the protagonist of a painting or sculpture, but remains alive and colourful, never shrinking into the imprint of a crumpled, existential body. His paintings contain the echo of coloured waves and fluid sound interferences. In Val Tidone, Ezra created terracotta sponges using humble kitchen sponges in coloured expanded plastic fibre, which became sculptures that composed a rhythmic formation, with striking musical and chromatic effect.
