Strattice 1, 2018, Oil on Canvas 52" x 50"

CARRIE JOHNSON

Artist Statement

Stratum Mesh
Imagined States of Rise and Fall

In this ongoing new series of Abstract oil paintings I experiment with overlapping many linear structures building and filling in some parts with color and texture while erasing or covering up other parts. It is a attempt to illustrate a sense of flow from focus to dissolve, building and falling apart. Using simple shapes and many layers of paint in an unplanned process I look for visual connections in the combination of parts letting the work evolve slowly, organically, quietly.
