Born of Water
We are pleased to present our first solo exhibition of work by Janis Pozzi-Johnson. Pozzi-Johnson lives and works in Evanston, IL and has been a mainstay on the Chicago art scene for many years having shown with Perimeter Gallery before it closed in 2016.
Janis' oil paintings are either single panel or several panels—ranging in size from 12 inches to 9 feet in width! The works are a skillful balance of color and brushwork, each piece composed of many layers of paint and several thousands of carefully placed brushstrokes. Meticulously painted, their surfaces almost resemble encaustic yet they are only oil. Often working in quiet tones of blue, gray and gold, Pozzi-Johnson creates an artistic space that is steady, calm and complex... all at once.
