"Jerusalem of the hours"
paintings and drawings by
John Luna

"All the substances in the world went floating up"

-Anne Carson,

'Autobiography of Red'
John Luna, a painter and writer originally from Victoria, presents "Jerusalem of the hours", an installation of paintings and drawings thatdeals with entropy and painting, the latter as both a substance (oils, resin, dust, ash, waxes, pencil shavings, imprints and tracings, aluminum) and a history (names, theories, etymologies). Passages in time, process, and literature appear both great and small, as do some of the loose ends that feed into and extend from these pictures.
