About the work
Geoffrey Johnson
American, b. 1965
Follow

A contemporary impressionist painter, Geoffrey Johnson creates high-contrast scenes of New York City streets in muted, sepia tones. Evoking individual isolation and anonymity within an urban environment, Johnson captures the feeling and essence of the city rather than how it looks in order to build scenes that resonate more strongly. With streets and sidewalks that appear to undulate and figures constructed from slight, hurried lines of black paint, Johnson’s figures appear to walk on water. What results is a reinforcement of the high-intensity, high-energy urban environment and distanced intimacy of individuals within a mass of people. Favoring muted, sepia tones, Johnson’s color palette serves to enhance the city’s stark aesthetics and raw, underlying energies to best reflect the artist’s attitude toward it.
