The interest of Stefan Stux “… lies in an engagement with art that transforms from avant garde to art history…”. His latest display from Aaron Johnson is a result of this maxim. “Star-Crossed” mongrels the latest of current political events loosely with base mythology. The hybrid of old and new offers the viewpoint that things never wholly change.
The work reminds me of something that William S. Burroughs wrote. Loosely recalled from memory, “…the creatures of all your dreams and nightmares; right here, solid as they ever were or will be.”
