John in Old Greenwich studios

 

“John’s work brings to mind the French poet, Francis Ponge, like Ponge, John worked with the world of everyday things. He affected subtle transformations, akin to the poet’s, where lucid evocations of the phenomenal world are subtly commuted into the realm of the noumenal, the ineffable, and ultimately dwell somewhere beyond description.” – Jim Mooney
