Kathryn Jill Johnson’s art is a combination of drawing and painting. “I am the worst sort of detective. I just like to pile up clues and rearrange them into melancholic jokes, farcical calamities and occasional moments of grace.” she wrote. Johnson takes you on a journey following her clues – images of birds, people, pipes, bandages, and medical devises – letting you take her constructions and translating them as you will. Johnson is currently a Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
