We are thrilled to be able to have some sublime Alison Johnson artwork here at the Enid Hutt Gallery. Alison’s artwork often seeks to capture the power of the natural world, and in so doing explores various types of fragility too, such as the idea of mortality
Originally studying at the Birmingham Institute Of Fine Art, Alison Johnson has had exhibitions of her work travel across the globe, from the UK to Italy, America and Paris and the Middle East. This is a testament to how well regarded she is becoming in the world of fine art. She has worked on commissions for high profile clients such as The Waldorf Hotel London, as well as working on her own collections.
Weaved through all her work is an atmospheric beauty which is achieved by intricate layering techniques, with her art reminiscent in this way of certain pieces which come from the Impressionist movement. It is this quality of her work which has led to comparisons being made between Alison Johnson and the great Impressionist master, Turner.
Initially appearing strikingly simple in its bold starkness, her work then reveals inner complexities the more you observe its shapes and textures. It is for this reason that Alison Johnson’s work mirrors the duality of human perception.
