Exposition of Place – Paintings and Drawings by Tiffany Johnson

Seabury Academy of Music and the Arts ARTWorks Gallery

Oct. 28, 2014, 12:00 am

60 East Avenue


The foundation of Tiffany Johnson’s work reflects her ideas. She is drawn to narrative influences, as she is to the subject of landscape. What Ms. Johnson is intrigued by are how both rural and cityscape environments are always changing. These environments also come out of her experiences growing up in the New England and Tri-state areas. The artist’s inspiration of literature and “place” is a connection of expressionistic and inventive balance between abstraction and impressionism.

For Ms. Johnson, the most important thing is clarity. She attempts to make things that include history, heritage, and interpret the settings through observation. She work in drawing and oil paint because both allow me to investigate these ideas. She connects with literature and poetry having to do with identity and progress. The viewer is invited to engage and absorb the places she presents from narrative or observed examinations.

Ms. Johnson’s transitions between the groups of work accelerates her curiosity to discover and explore with an array of inventive palettes. She experiments with a variation of color choices that are not “local” using the pictorial composition to create unified harmony.
