Lisa Johnson

About the Artist

Lisa Johnson is a Canadian painter whose work explores space and the passage of time over an evolving landscape. Johnson has been painting Canadian landscapes for over 20 years. Her paintings express the movement and poetry of landscape, weaving geographic, corporeal, and abstract sensibilities through layers of atmospheric grounds and gestural drawing. Her landscape abstractions are created through an improvisational process, allowing fragments of experience, memories, and emotions to emerge from the subconscious. For Johnson, this painting process allows her to create lyrical worlds that speak to the relationship between the artist and the land.

Lisa Johnson has shown widely both in solo and group shows both in throughout Canada. Her work is in numerous of private and corporate collections in the U.S.A., Europe, and Canada.
