Abstract (English)

Three essayists discuss how Johnson's prints incorporate formal aspects of painting, photography and graphic design, along with language appropriated from American consumer culture, to create "cute" allegorical images and narratives. The authors situate the work in the contexts of Pop Art, Conceptual Art, Modernism, Postmodernism and psychoanalytic theory, and discuss issues concerning textuality, technology and death. Biographical notes. 84 bibl. ref.
