    Lisa Johnson’s solo exhibition ‘Metamorphosis’ is an evolution of enquiries into space and movement within the context of landscape painting. Johnson is fascinated with art history, drawing upon the techniques of past masters from Rubens and de Kooning to Soutine and Tom Thompson. Through her ethereal and sculptural use of pigment Johnson depicts vast landscapes where forms and figures seem to poetically emerge. Drawing inspiration from on-location studies to develop large studio works, her paintings weave geographic, corporeal, and abstract sensibilities through layers of atmospheric grounds and gestural mark making. Her work speaks to the passage of time over landscapes painted with spirit and musicality.

    Lisa Johnson graduated with Honours from the Ontario College of Art and Design, where she also won the prestigious Mrs. W.O. Forsythe Award for 4th year women painters in 1996. Johnson studied under sculptor Tom Dean and most recently with Harold Klunder.

    Lisa Johnson’s work has been shown in solo and group shows throughout Ontario and can be found in numerous private and corporate collections in the Canada, U.S.A., and Europe.

    “She is a modern romantic poised halfway between the world of purely painterly dreams and visions of grand mysterious Canadian places.” –Robert Kameczura, Big Shoulder’s Magazine

    CENSUS is a contemporary art exhibition featuring emerging lens-based artists completing their thesis studies at OCAD University. Works exhibited explore socio-cultural representation and notions of identity through the photographic medium. In Camera Lucida, Roland Barthes states that “In front of the lens, I am at the same time: the one I think I am, the one I want others to think I am, the one the photographer thinks I am, and the one he makes use of to exhibit his art.” These multiple ways of seeing have influenced the participating artists, whose recordings of individuals uncover the relationships that form identity.
