Laura Johnston is a multidisciplinary artist working in the San Francisco Bay Area. She uses mixed media, painting, photography, and small sculpture in her work, which all centers around the human psyche.
Laura’s artwork plays along a delicate line between serious subjects and child-like playfulness. She dots her pieces with subtle bits of humor or unexpected pairings to challenge expectations and keep viewers on their toes. Her process is intuitive and expressive; she jumps in head-first, discovering the piece and its meaning along the way.
Current projects include her portrait series Lovely Ladies, the continued heading of le animalé, and ongoing surreal paintings that conjure colorful unconscious scenes.
