Exploring GRAVITAS

Gravitas was one of the Roman virtues, along with pietas, dignitas and virtus. It may be translated variously as weight, seriousness and dignity, also importance, and it connotes a certain substance or depth of personality.

"I invite you to experience an emotional interior space inspired by place and varying states of consciousness from, memory, rapture, and anticipation. 

My work mirrors the human experience itself, reflecting our connection to place and the emotions it evokes".Cheryl Johnson

Cheryl Johnson's work is characterized by the contrast of intimate handling of paint offset by layering of bold brushstrokes combined with a spontaneous process of exploring unbroken fields of poured colour. Her compositions are deeply contemplative musings on colour, shape and texture.

There is a distinct poetry in her arrangements, as Cheryl composes her canvases as harmonious and intriguing arrangements of colour and varying values appear.

Inspired by Abstract Expressionism your mind often conjure images of Jackson Pollock's dynamic action paintings or Mark Rothko's or Helen Frankenthalers expansive color field canvases. These giants, alongside figures like Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, and Clyfford Still, Franz Kline, spearheaded this revolutionary movement.

However, Abstract Expressionism transcends its initial era, evolving over the past 70 years. It remains as beloved and influential as ever among both artists and collectors.

I proudly call myself an Abstract Expressionist Artist creating ULTIMATE ABSTRACTIONS.

Cheryl Johnson's paintings focus on a concern with varying degrees of abstraction used to convey strong emotional or expressive content and the connections between humans and the natural world. She uses abstract art to represent these connections, like in her painting exploring Secret Forests, where she uses mixed media, acrylic and oil on linen and canvas to create an abstract image.

In contrast, Johnson's figurative paintings break down and rebuild the human body and other objects, helping viewers to see ourselves in new ways.

Creation of art with symbols that convey deeper meaning and values has been part of the human experience for centuries. Just as Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night where the artist used symbols to communicate the relationship between nature.

The artist uses abstraction as a method for interpreting surfaces and place. —

Cheryl Johnson's paintings dissolve bodies and liquefy structures, offering viewers a simultaneous deconstruction and expansion of their understanding of their surroundings.

Daybreak Morning Inpiration

Daybreak Morning

I was originally inspired by the artist Maxfield Parrish. You will notice I attempted to emulate his idea of foliage at the top of the canvas and his color palette thrilled me. 

Maxfield Parrish’s paintings of beautiful surroundings and delightful characters charmed the public during America’s Golden Age of Illustration. Maxfield Parrish’s artwork has been used for book illustrations, large murals, and magazine covers. 

Just as Parrish embraced the Golden Spiral and Golden Specturm I also employed this method in painting this painting in oil. The outer proportions and internal divisions of Parrish's compositions were carefully calculated in accordance with geometric principles such as root rectangles and the golden ratio. In this Parrish was influenced by Jay Hambidge's theory of Dynamic Symmetry. If you are an aritst I encourage you to learn more about the golden ratio.

Nature demonstrates to us that fine contrast, tough survival, and subtle intricacies are what create beauty. A lot of the time, the beauty of nature lies in things we aren't able to perceive unless we truly try to look, and more importantly, understand. What we are "surprised" to perceive, rather than what we are "supposed" to see, is what defines beauty. With the "My Intwined Beauty" series, I'm exploring the landscape with bold, gestural brushstrokes and abstraction.
