SEALIGHT SERIES

Sealight series is a body of work that consists of large scale paintings on paper and canvas and ceramic vases. The Maritime channel markers motif replaces her roadsigns motifs to convey her continuously moving journey. Worked on during the COVID-19 pandemic, these paintings symbolise the mix of feelings that this health crisis has brought. 

 

Whether it is the feelings of being lost out to sea, perhaps a beacon of hope, mystical figures - perhaps a female figure leading or a masculine figure holding strong, there are many interpretations that the viewer can make.

 

Looking at Johnson’s work can make you feel uneasy as she evokes a sense of danger with her childlike and crude mark making. She walks the line between playful innocence and ominous darkness.

 

In these times of uncertainty and fear; these works have a brave beauty that is facing the danger and weathering this storm.
