Travis Johnson – LET THE PAINT DRY
Curated by Alan Motley
Show runs through 12/13/20

About this Series
Travis says, “For this group of paintings l have been looking at this idea of gazing back at the observer. I have been trying to distill the idea of looking from a personal lived history, and seeing things from a personal geographical lens. “The Gaze From The Desert”, is sitting with this thought of being seen and seeing. I am asking the question, ‘Who holds the power in this dynamic, and why is that important?’.”

About the Artist
Travis Johnson has spent the last 3 decades developing his craft as a creative and uses his art to explore the human experience by touching on the whimsical, silly, serious, and sometimes painful side of life. He uses the subtle nuances of classic western world iconography to tell a highly illustrated and visually rich narrative.

His main artistic inspirations are: Bill Watterson, Justin Bua, Thomas Hart Benton, Kerry James Marshall, Kara Walker, Michael Hafftka, Bill Turner

Along with his visual art, Travis has spent the last 25 years singing throughout the US on various tours with his family singing group Fivacious. He continues to share his music as a solo act through out the US.

Travis was born in Southern California, where he grew up with his 5 siblings in the Mojave Desert. He is currently based out of Olympia, WA.
