Amy Johnson

Artist Statement

Amy Johnson's work explores the connection between landscape and folkloric storytelling. The two topics work symbiotically, with the landscape inspiring the tales that are passed on by communities, and the stories themselves changing how we might regard or remember a place.

The work focuses on tales located near the coast and the strange, ambiguous stories created in liminal spaces. It uses a diverse range of medium and materials combining found objects, photographs, film, and charcoal sketches.
