Balloon, 2012 is a piece by Dede Johnston and is part of our New Collection of Modern Art. This piece is available in one size of over a meter wide and is a signed edition of 5.
Growing up in Vermont, near the Canadian border, Johnston developed an early passion for snow-laden alpine vistas. They are now an important theme in her photographic work. Ski resorts present an illusion of security in an inhospitable landscape, but in reality man remains vulnerable to powerful natural forces. Johnston’s series ‘Crowded Slopes’ plays on this tension between safety and danger. Human figures appear dwarfed by their surroundings, in images that recall something of 19th-Century ‘sublime’ landscapes.
Balloon comes in the size 127cm wide and 153cm tall. It is a digital C-type print of a scene from Courcheval, France from a series titled 'The New Wilderness' that aims to display the mystery, silence and our vulnerability in the natural world. Balloon is framed in a white box frame.
Balloon comes with a signed certification of authenticity by the artist, Dede Johnston. It is hanging in our showroom at the moment, so is ready for immediate viewing and delivery.
