Artist Crush: Celia Johnson

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

The reductive, pop-y work of Celia Johnson caught my attention recently. These pieces are encaustic and alkyd on wood. In her statement Celia writes, “I enjoy persuading liquid paints, inks and hot glowing wax into counterintuitively distinct, bound, or embedded fields of pure saturated color.”

Artist Crush: Mark Goodwin

Friday, November 7, 2014

Mark Goodwin is an artist and sculpture based in Randolph, Vermont who has been exhibiting his work since 1980. He also has a great tumblr worth checking out.

“Raised in a place where representation was paramount for something to be labeled art, I found great excitement in non-objective work where a black square on a canvas was enough. Today, in my own work, I flirt with representation yet shy away from rendering a specific illusion.”
