Powerful Flight  ‘Unfolding Dimensions Series’ presents a new series of gesture paintings that explore a desire for personal rediscovery and growth. Focusing on space, the contrast between the various elements of the paintings, the value of colors, shapes originated from mark-making lines and geometry.  Johnson’s Finnish heritage is emotionally connected to the countryside and nature. Climate Awareness is a central theme in this exciting new series.

Powerful - producing increased physical strength or force to lift into the air.  An act or instance of passing through the air by the use of wings as seen in the flight of birds. 
Bio: Cheryl Johnson is a painter who explores the connection between realism and abstraction, balancing bold gestural art with sensitive expression. Resonating with Abstract Expressionists her non-objective and figurative early works transitioned into abstract representational themes. Her work is inspired by world travels as well as the landscape and cultures of her homes in North Carolina, Hawaii and her Idaho birthplace as well as her Finnish heritage. Cheryl’s transcendent eye propels her to explore the emotions of the place.
As a strong environmental awareness advocate, her canvases are often inspired by nature and resonate with a deftly modulated palette of translucent and opaque colors.  Light hues bleed into darks with a sense of expressive, fluid movement and reflect the harmony and tenacity of the natural world. Cheryl’s studios are in Charlotte, NC, and Hanalei, Kauai, HI.


“Art leads to compassion and sensitivity and the world needs that.”   Cheryl Johnson
