Tim Johnson

Often described as floating worlds, Tim Johnson creates extraordinarily powerful paintings that embrace the spiritual iconography of a range of cultures including those of Aboriginal Australia, the Buddhist East and Native America.

His paintings are landscapes of desire, images of impossible unity, imagined syntheses of cultural and visual systems that freely draw upon images whose meaning we do not necessarily recognise or understand.
