Johannes Girardoni’s works are reductive investigations, through which he explores the continuously shifting relationship between reality and image. His material vocabulary – found wood, plywood, wax, pigment, light, enamel and plexiglass - and its physical constellation, are the foundation of an immaterial phenomenon. The works are often examinations of phenomenological processes, where a hollow or empty space turns out to be the actual center of the work. Opposites and contradictions, as well as the complex dialectic between them, are Girardoni’s fundamental themes. – Johannes Girardoni lives in Los Angeles.
