David Earl Johnson, Cincinnati, Ohio Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement David Earl Johnson
It has always been my deepest held belief that we are charged in this life with discovering and revealing the creative ability within ourselves. This is the gift we are given by our very existence. As we explore our intuition and curiosity, we find the path to communication with ourselves and others. My art is, at it’s simplest, an attempt to be a catalyst for the viewer to think and express themselves in ways new to them. In this I believe we grow together as human beings, sharing emotion and thought in a way which leads us to growth mentally and spiritually As I explore myself through the expressions of my art, I grow closer to the world at large. Art is not a solitary experience to me, but a vehicle of sharing and collaboration. I am driven to be one with all, and in this spirit, do seek others to express their own vision through my art as either the collaborator or viewer.
