About Angela Johnson

My art practice, both with printmaking and painting, is my attempt to respond to and understand both the vulnerabilities and the beauty encapsulated within the human condition. I have always been inspired to draw and engage with the human form on a deeper level than simply figuratively. The people I choose to portray show a certain strength, attitude and extraordinariness. I offer these images in the hope that my work may reflect back something to the viewer about themselves - for them to feel their own inner strength and to know that they are inspiring and beautiful too.
Drawing is a key part of my artistic practice and using drypoint for printmaking enables me to take this further. Each image is individually drawn into a plastic 'plate', which is then inked up by hand using the intaglio method. When I am happy with the qualities of the ink I then run it through a traditional hand-operated printing press on Somerset printmaking paper (250-300gsm).
