Nicholas William Johnson, °1982 Honolulu, HI, USA

Johnson’s recent research focuses on plant consciousness, which is not only a topic of interest in ancient mythologies and indigenous shamanic knowledge, but also in current academic studies. Johnson’s paintings can be described as lush “jungles”, with ripe fruit connoting an unabashed sensuality and an abundance of color that is titillating to the eye. With these works Johnson seems to attempt to unite the “binary split” which the Enlightenment caused – that “gulf in perception” that divides human and plant consciousness.
