Image coming soon.

John Seed talks with painter Mitchell Johnson about his work on the occasion of the exhibition Mitchell Johnson: Are You Going With Me? at Res Ipsa Gallery, Oakland, CA on view from May 4 – June 15, 2012.

Johnson observes that in his paintings "the abstraction was always happening, in many ways all of my paintings are the same because they are about how do you get the color to work, which shapes have meaning. The most significant shift in my work was around 2004 when the shapes and areas of color in my paintings became larger as if I had zoomed in on pieces of my earlier paintings to draw attention to the color and the compositional choices."
