Liquid Light Lab is the work of Steve Pavlovsky, a multi-dimensional light artist from New York City. A majority of his work utilizes liquid projection, experimental media, and hand-made organic elements first seen in the Psychedelic Light Shows of the 1960s. Following on the visual music traditions of Kandinsky, Thomas Wilfred, and The Joshua Light Show, Mr. Pavlovsky invokes the sublime and spiritual. Building upon an analog relationship to Light and Time, Pavlovsky has created Liquid Light Lab, a living, breathing, visual expression of music, nature, and the human spirit.

Notable shows and projects have included work with members of Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead, Serpentine Galleries in London, The New York Public Library, HBO, Nature science journal, Sony Music, and collaborations with pioneering light artist Joshua White.

Concurrent with live performance and installation, Liquid Light Lab is also a vehicle for public information about light shows, and provides tools and guidance to other artists around the world.

Devin B. Johnson is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Brooklyn. He works primarily in the language of painting. Johnson’s work is based on the decoding and reassembling of socio-cultural structures.

He often draws from sourced images, urban landscapes, and a lexicon of familiar experiences. Johnson combines examinations of the black aesthetic, through gestural mark making and uncanny imagery. The paintings are an amalgam of exterior and interior moments of black bodies in rest or leisure. The paintings are labored to mimic corrosion of facades in which moments of reveal take place. His compositions speak to the fragmented nature of memory and how it is reshaped when its revisited. Those tactile moments in the landscape are often negotiated within paintings, sculptures, sound and mixed media collages.

Devin B. Johnson was born in Los Angeles, California, 1992. Johnson obtained his BA in Fine Arts from the California State University of Channel Islands in 2015 and will receive a Masters of Fine Arts at Pratt institute in 2019. He has showed in various group shows across Los Angeles. Recently he showed with Residency Gallery in Los Angeles for The New Contemporaries (2018) group exhibition and has participated in ICA LA’s Incognito (2018) benefit sale. Devin B. Johnson was awarded the recent honor of being featured in this years Northeast issue of New American Paintings.
