Cheryl Johnson explores mark making, dramatic use of color, energetic gestural lines, blended shapes and color created in an emotional layering that is very physical and freeing. Inspired by Gerhard Richter.
Art touches the spirit. Each painting has a life of its own. It is started with a prayer and finished when she steps back and studies and knows it is independent of her. The light and dark images evoke our quest to overcome spiritual darkness. Her work is a quest to bring about light. She sees her role as an artist to inspire, share emotion and illuminate.

"Despite this variety, Abstract Expressionist paintings share several broad characteristics. They are basically abstract—i.e., they depict forms not drawn from the visible world. They emphasize free, spontaneous, and personal emotional expression, and they exercise considerable freedom of technique and execution to attain this goal, with a particular emphasis laid on the exploitation of the variable physical character of paint to evoke expressive qualities (e.g., sensuousness, dynamism, violence, mystery, lyricism). They show similar emphasis on the unstudied and intuitive application of that paint in a form of psychic improvisation akin to the automatism of the Surrealists, with a similar intent of expressing the force of the creative unconscious in art. They display the abandonment of conventionally structured composition built up out of discrete and segregate elements and their replacement with a single unified, undifferentiated field, network, or another image that exists in unstructured space. And finally, the paintings fill large canvases to give these aforementioned visual effects both monumentality and engrossing power"

Small Oil
Cheryl Johnson: Small Oil Painting: 16'x20' The size of the artwork forces one to go in and really look. “Smaller beckons: get close, touch, relate – they inspire a reduction of the psychic distance between one thing and another; between people and things” – from the book and philosophy: “Wabi Sabi”
