CAW Reception on Thursday 15th of November
A little humor, some pathos and a lot of color combined in a commentary on our responsibility for the care of our planet.
Animals, landscapes and colorful acrylic paint combine to express the joy Phyllis Johnson find in the beauty of our planet (and her concern for its preservation!).
She enjoys working on a colorful, textured surface and after establishing her subject and focus, she likes to allow the background to direct the search for the atmosphere of the piece.
She has always loved to paint and draw and from her first visit to the Tate Gallery she was mesmerized by J.M.W. Turner’s atmospheric, colorful art. Whenever she is in London, a visit to the Tate is on the agenda.
