Mark Johnson

Sauron Designs

"The world is full of unseen energies, flowing, fierce, or antic, that animate the visible. These energies move in vibrations that appear to us as light, or sound, or the shifting of tectonic plates, or as the myriad of phenomena that range in both directions on the spectrum. These are the energies of my mind and heart, beyond any measure."

Mark Johnson creates abstract expressionist prints inspired by the art of Piet Mondrian, Paul Klee, Joan Miro, and Vassily Kandinsky, whose paintings researched the emotional and psychological properties of color, line, and form. While abstract in its openness to interpretation, Johnson's work is full of clear allusions to the known world. The variety and complexity of his marks infuses his work with energy.

Johnson's contemporary art is an experimental process that combines the electronic and the handmade: his mixed-media monoprints are created using an electronic pen and drawing pad, which transfer the movements of the artist's hand to the computer screen. Using a range of digital brushes, Johnson varies the color of lines and forms, and creates an environment of multiple graphic layers.

Mark Johnson earned a BS in art education and an MFA in art from University of Wisconsin in Madison. He has shown his work across the USA.
