"Exuberance is beauty - William Blake"
Victoria Johnson creates paintings rich in color and form. A portland native, currently based in Tacoma, she studied at the University of Oregon. Her shows are informed by deep appreciation of modern art and the history of design.
Her paintings emphasize minimalism by simplifying forms to their organic essence developed through experimentation. Inspired by ancient forms, industrial design, geology and themes of Modern atomic science, she is driven to combine a primitive aesthetic with modern sensibilities.
Johnson achieves her idea of abstraction by flirting with color harmony and dissonance, structure/ no structure. Her juxtapositions and supple layers of oil paint take on unexpected passages on her canvases.
Her commissioned paintings include Boston Consulting Group,Seattle, Capstar Hotel Company, Vancouver, British Columbia - JW Marriott Resort and Spa, Palm Desert & the French Quarter, New Orleans - Nokia, Redmond, Washington. Suites of the Venetian Macao Resort and Casino, Macau, China, Hilton Embassy Suites, Seattle, WA.
Paintings are available and commissioned as they come out of the studio.
