The Paintings of Geoffrey Johnson

Interior with Sofa by Geoffrey Johnson

Untitled (April) by Geoffrey Johnson

City - Early Evening by Geoffrey Johnson

North Carolina native Geoffrey Johnson has been working as a painter since 1995 after he completed a degree in Fine Art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. There’s something very impressive about his work and his images carry a sense of reflection and solemnness.

Most of what he paints is done with an amazing monochromatic palette and I’m instantly drawn to his use of sepia tones (not to mention the striking pale blue of the top image). His silhouetted figures are shrouded in an air of mystery and the way he manages to paint large groups within the landscape of the city while still presenting a sense of melancholy only enforces the sense of mystery throughout his work. These paintings are both alluring and haunting and I’ve a great fondness for them. Johnson doesn’t have his own site but more work can seen online here.

    Wanted to chime in on how great this work is. Also never told you how much I love the fox. And… the address of the last link in this post is missing its leading “h” in http. Thanks.
