The House of Uncommons is an exhibition of new painting work by artist Zach Johnsen. Taking place at Hellion Gallery in Portland, Oregon, The House of Uncommons explores an alternate Parliamentary system of law and the spirit figures which make laws outside of man. Each painting depicts a figure within this fantasy system of rules with it's own unique name, identity and powers of legislation.
This is a video showing the process of the painting work for the exhibition. And yes, most of the paintings were toned with smoke bombs..
The House of Uncommons opens August 1st, 2013 at Hellion Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
