Artist Crush: Celia Johnson

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.”
