Yossi Milo Gallery presents new mixed media work by Canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson in her first solo exhibition at the gallery. Woodland.

Johnson makes artworks that, in her view, depict nature as “more truthful” than it appears to the naked eye. From traditional knowledge of the land passed down through generations of indigenous peoples, to the influence of ancient trees on sacred architecture, and modern scientific research testing the ability of trees to communicate intelligently, the artist draws inspiration from the transcendent yet invisible aspects of nature.

Johnson takes photographs in the forests of her native Manitoba. Working intuitively, she transforms her large-scale pigment prints into active grounds for applying both fine art and unconventional materials, such as oil paint, gold or brass leaf, sparkly holographic stickers, and photo-spotting ink, across their surfaces. Johnson’s added forms represent with paint and brush what the eye and camera cannot apprehend — not only communication between plants, but, just as importantly, her personal experience of the landscape.
