Sarah Anne Johnson uses photography as a base for manipulation to fabricate an image that expresses not just a moment in time, but the feelings she has towards the subject. Adding materials such as paints, re-touching inks, glitter, as well as incorporating burning, scratching, and gouging, each photograph is a unique attempt to make visual what is felt by the artist about each work. Ms. Johnson has created six major bodies of work, all of which have been exhibited broadly.
Johnson was born in 1976 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She received her BFA from the University of Manitoba and completed her MFA at The Yale School of Art. Johnson’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards and is included in several distinguished collections. Currently, she lives in Winnipeg. She is represented by Julie Saul Gallery in New York, Stephen Bulger in Toronto, and Division Gallery in Montreal.
This photograph is from Sarah Anne Johnson’s series, “Arctic Wonderland”. These artworks were created following a 2009 trip to the Arctic as part of an invited group of 20 artists. The views depicted are altered with interventions that suggest the impact of human civilization on the environment. The geometric shape imposed upon the landscape rests on the horizon line, lending a poignant aspect of something being just out of reach. The resulting compositions in “Arctic Wonderland”, although editioned, are individually embossed and/or coloured, creating unique attributes within each print.
