Bahamian artist Tyler Johnston, who works under the pseudonym Bahama Woodstarr, will open his conceptual art show “Beg, Borrow, Steal” on Friday, May 31 at Liquid Courage Gallery.

The show is comprised of found objects which have literally been begged, borrowed or stolen. All of the objects are painted various shades of pink and some have been reconstructed or rearranged.

Painting the objects pink changes the perceived content of an object’s identity. The viewer is offered an opportunity to look at the object in a new way, becoming hyper aware of its texture and shape.

“Once an object is painted the perception of its value and identity changes,” says Johnston.

In addition to being painted, the value of each piece is associated with its story or the way it was obtained.

Bahama Woodstarr, along with iconic Bahamian Artist Kendal Hanna, will also debut a short performance during the show on the evening of the opening at the gallery in Palmdale.
