Artist, Jane Johnson, creates process driven, mixed media paintings that are built, as much as painted. She starts with a loose layer of color in acrylic, adds texture, adds collage, draws into the work, and then repeats that process over and over again. Jane allows the layers to build and reveal images that direct her where to go with the painting. The images are either abstract, figurative or floral but they are all created in exactly the same process. When a painting is complete it has somewhere between 25 to 40 layers of paint, and collage. As the surface builds, she will take photos of the work, studying the value changes and also finding what story the canvas is trying to reveal.
