Synopsis: This catalog is companion to the exhibition which explored the first decade of the work of Jasper Johns. It is not, however, a survey of Johns' painting between 1955 and 1965. Instead, it concerns groups of works that intersect through Johns' use of four related motifs: the target (a ready made image); the "device" (the pivoted slat used to scrape paint); the stenciled naming of colors; and the cast or imprint of the body. Each motif manifests or stands for a quasi-mechanical procedure: rotation (target); appending an object (device) and scraping paint; stenciling language (naming of colors); imprinting the face, feet, and above all, the artist's hand. These motifs appear either alone or together in various combinations, and they constitute an inventory of operations for art-making through which Johns can be said to have evaded conventions of both abstraction and figuration, while engaging elements of both.
