Lynn Johnson
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. ~Hans Hofmann As a painter, it is my aim to courageously convey my subject in an original, abstracted and simplified form — one that reveals it’s imperfections and authenticity. My process begins with imagery stemming from many sources. It might come from a memory, my immediate environment, travel, or my own photographs and sketches. It progresses by combining a love for drawing and mark making with washes and expressive, fluid brushstrokes. It’s a layering process, a dialogue, addition and subtraction. I don’t paint with a precise plan, I make mistakes but consider them occasions to create something unique and unexpected. As my work continues to evolve, I rely on my process and intuition to guide me in fearlessly expressing the beauty and vulnerability I find in my many subjects. Lynn Johnson lives and works in Atlanta. Her work has been exhibited in public and private collections around the United States. She received her BFA from Iowa State University College of Art.
