Lù|Way In “Lù|Way,” artist Leah Schreiber Johnson of Milwaukee, Wisconsin investigates how day-to-day physical experiences are altered by the cultural landscape. Her monoprints were created during a residency in Wuhan, China, and inspired by the meditative and public Chinese practice of painting calligraphy, as well as the physical and visual experience of the busy city sidewalks. Created with pigment, ink, and water, the monotypes were made directly on Wuhan sidewalks. Part public performance and part quasi-archeological record, the artwork reflects the contradictions between China’s esteemed ancient customs and the fleeting nature of its quickly shifting populations and places.
