Haystack Perspective

Dion Johnson’s large paintings are alive – undulating lines and swathes of saturated hues drape the picture plane in a way that can best be described as sensuous. Johnson’s vivid colors are lush and luminous, daring and bright. Blue, pink, green, maroon, teal, gray, black, white, and yellow form a rhythmic pattern both chaotic and inviting. With his color palettes and shifting planes, Johnson showcases his ability to emulate the energy of a time and place. Lines travel throughout his compositions with a buzzy saunter and maverick confidence, brazen as neon signs but instilled with tranquil melodies.
