Description: In the fall of 2019 Cheryl desired a shift in her life and returned from a summer in Kauai to her familiar setting of her NC studio. In this innovation she wants to reaffirm her individuality and release boundaries and explore or transform her work. For the past decade her work included brighter jewel tones. In the autumn of 2019 inspired by her daily inspiration and photography in Kauai of a solitary mountain view covered by various veils of clouds she started a new series “Veiled Quiet Reflections.” This conscious shift in her work, inspired by prayer, meditation and reflection, began by examining her emotions and searching for a new approach to her daily life of creation. She consciously explored a simplified refined composition, softer warm colors, a new utilization of space and a personal time of self awakening. Johnson will be continuing to explore these concepts.

Unfolding Dimensions ‘Unfolding Dimensions’ presents a new series of paintings which explores a desire for personal rediscovery and growth. Focusing on space, the contrast between the various elements of the paintings, the value of shapes originated from geometry, nature and Johnson’s Finnish heritage. Climate Awareness is a central theme in this exciting new series.
Bio: Cheryl Johnson is a painter who explores the connection between realism and abstraction, balancing bold gestural art with sensitive expression. Resonating with Abstract Expressionists her non-objective and figurative early works transitioned into abstract representational themes. Her work is inspired by world travels as well as the landscape and cultures of her homes in North Carolina, Hawaii and her Idaho birthplace as well as her Finnish heritage. Cheryl’s transcendent eye propels her to explore the emotions of place.
As a strong environmental awareness advocate, her canvases are often inspired by nature and resonate with a deftly modulated palette of translucent and opaque colors. Light hues bleed into darks with a sense of expressive, fluid movement and reflect the harmony and tenacity of the natural world.
Cheryl’s studios are in Charlotte, NC, and Hanalei, Kauai, HI.
