It Became Strange When They Arrived, Acrylic on Canvas, 24 in. x 36 in., 2016
Johnston's paintings embody a distinctive visionary approach to life and the parallels of our experiences. Intended to be direct manifestations of the way humans perceive nature, the environment we create is a flexuous universe of its own. Johnston's artwork is centered on the principle of eliciting strong emotional responses to everyday elements based on the viewers past experiences. The ability to communicate through simplistic visual language is a theme carried throughout every piece.
