Iskra Johnson

Seattle, WA

I have worked as an artist and designer for my entire professional life. My background in design gives me a wide visual vocabulary and good practice in collaboration. I have an extensive education in Asian painting and calligraphy as well as a BFA in painting from the University of Washington. My archival pigment prints combine photography, painting and collage in a uniquely modern language of visual space. I am fascinated with the intersection of architectural structure and atmosphere. Recent subjects range from urban architecture to landscape and botanical forms, united by the overarching theme of impermanence. "The Floating World" is an ongoing print project that mixes the aesthetic of Yoshitoshi's 19th Century woodblock prints with the industrial landscape of the urban port. Recent shows include an exhibit of Contemporary Printmaking at Seattle Art Museum Gallery and paintings and mixed media at Museo Gallery. My work is in the collection of the City of Seattle and private collections nationwide.
