Picture for category Alison Johnson

Alison lives in Warwickshire and works from her Studio based at Fargo Coventry. Her atmospheric oil paintings are vibrant and seductive, and a focal point for any space. By expressing the power of light she shows the abstract, surreal side to the natural world.

Her interest in nature and unmaterialistic beauty has been a constant source of passion since childhood, be it relationships between people, the struggles of life and the ever changing but constant landscape around. Fuelled by a previous career in nursing, Alison aims to combine these emotions.

Her seascapes follow a deep tradition which she modernises and brings to a contemporary forefront. Colours sink below a piercing white surface as oceans and landscapes drift in and out of a sweeping hazy mist. The sky appears deep and brooding, the colours revealing a darkness that battles with the flashes of light. When shapes and figures do reveal themselves they appear lost and fragile against the infinite space of the world around.

Such is the atmosphere contained in these works they could easily be viewed as pure abstractions, each detail vital enough to stand alone. Ephemeral, warm, powerful and evocative, she creates a sense of movement through colour, light and balance.

With a nod to the impressionist painters Johnson's work has been likened to the great masters of our time such as Turner. Her work continues to reach clients on an international scale.
