Jolanta Johnsson

I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where I specialized in graphics. Since then, I have been working as a freelance artist, and painting and drawing are techniques that dominate my work.
I create figurative compositions and landscapes. Through symbolic simplifications, I try to raise existential questions. I focus on the reality that surrounds me, that is, the existence of “modern man” living in the age of multidimensional changes.
The second central theme of my work is landscapes. I interpret emotions caused by my surroundings, especially nature. My compositions sometimes show the layouts and divisions seen. Often, however, the image leads me to more abstract solutions. My work on landscapes is dominated by the need to simplify and summarize, but at the same time I work with different textures to create a vivid image. Portraits occupy a special place. With the expression on my face I try to express the truth about the human being, whatever that may mean.
Painting is most important. However, graphics also claim their rights. I put my brushes down and go to the graphic studio. I like to work in traditional techniques, especially the linocut technique. But I am also looking for unusual traces, creating matrices from various materials. Graphics is a search. Although it allows reproduction, this feature of the graphic is not the most important for me. I print small editions.
A graphic print on good paper has an element of nobility, unique beauty. I believe that a hand-made graphic print will survive all new inventions in printing technology. Already more widely used by visual artists, computer techniques do not overwhelm traditional methods.
