McAllister Thomas is delighted to present The Silk Road Series, a collection of paintings by Christopher Johnson.
This series of paintings concentrates on a balance between the artist's connection with a few places along the Silk Roads that he has experienced, and the imaginative touchstone that these places engender. Within the paintings themselves, the Silk Road seems to carry his own journey from elements of representation to elements of a more abstracted interpretation. Colour and the expressive power of paint are wielded together in a manner that moves work from being grounded in a spirit of place to a broader understanding of landscape and journeys, where its enigma is approached in dynamic, painterly form.
