On the road silence

On the Road_Silence

Piece description from the artist

These compositions literally play on the title “On the Road,” as landscapes of figures on expanses of pavement. Alternately, these solitary figures in a paved and demarcated life ask us whether it is or not a “small world.” The paintings intend to harbor the character of traditional Chinese landscape painting, where there is no discernible horizon line, and where the human figure is often dwarfed in a monochromatic swirl of dots, dashes, and lines.

About Adrian Johnston

Melrose Ma, MA

Adrian Johnston is an artist and illustrator in Boston MA. Since his earliest days in Tennessee, mark-making, and movement have been a foundational directive to his pursuits. He has been influenced by both eastern and western schools of visual art as means to communicate and experience stories. Visual imagery in oil, tempera, acrylic, graphite, ink, pigment, pixels and vectors provide means for explorations that are part architectural framework, part fingerprint of the human psyche in landscape, and part play in the physical surface of the artistic medium itself.
