About Kelly Johnston
Address and work:
The waters and skies surrounding Bainbridge Island and the San Juan archipelago of Washington state provide endless inspiration for Kelly Johnston’s landscape-based paintings. Bold color and loosely dripping paint combine to emulate the interaction of sunlight on the water’s surface as well as the abstract qualities of clouds and sky. Working with water soluble oils, Johnston uses swirls of color, fluid brushstrokes and atmospheric depth to evoke sunlight and waves at sea.
