"Randy Johnson's paintings are pure abstractions: compositional gems found within larger fields of seemingly chaotic disorder. While the images are clearly ethereal, they also reveal stunningly familiar patterns that mimic the underlying structural essence of life forms and natural phenomena."
— Architecture+ Magazine,Vol. 7 (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)

Artist's Statement:
My sense of color developed from the experience of sub-tropical Florida: landscapes with clouds gliding across cerulean skies and lapping turquoise seas; all accented by birds, vibrant foliage and tropical flowers. The paintings have been referred to as abstracted Florida landscapes.

My art is meant to literally touch nerves; to create sensory experiences that trigger memories from our own internal archives. I mean for it to have an ethereal aspect, to have the capacity to start an internal movie-making experience, and to spark a sense of awe in the beautiful variations of our natural world."
—Randy Johnson

Among the artists who have inspired Johnson are Robin Rose, Ray Burggraf, Trevor Bell, Jack Reilly, Daniel Miller, Evgeni Vodenitcharov, Johnny McKenzie, Roger Dean, Peter Max, Brian Rutenberg, Ron Jones, and Randy Grubb.

Johnson's paintings are available in short limited editions of 12 to 30 digital prints on canvas or paper. They are not reproductions of existing works of art. Initial acrylic paintings in acrylics are digitally recomposed and repainted by the artist. The completed works are the end product of an art-making process similar to the complex series of steps that lead to a multi-color serigraph.
