For those who got all snitty as the Globe searched for a visual arts critic, new guy Ken Johnson is showing that it was worth the wait. Don't trust me - we do work for the same paper, and yes, there is potential for bias - read Johnson's work.

On Tuesday, Johnson offered an unforgiving take on John Walker's new show. Here's a line for the artist not to put in his publicity material: "Considering how small they are, the paintings are remarkably unsubtle."

Today, Johnson writes about the Rhode Island School of Design's "Wunderground: Providence, 1995 to the present" exhibition, a poster show meant to capture a decade of art done by the up-and-comers passing through RISD. It's as much a review as a snapshot profile of the Fort Thunder crowd.
