Elisa Johns


Elisa Johns has a new selection of oil paintings up at Mike Weiss Gallery. Within the exhibition, entitled “Huntress,” Johns draws from mythology, in particular the female goddess/heroine, for her subject matter. Her fragile, waifish women reference today’s “revered” paradigm of female beauty, the high fashion model, while her delicately dripping washes set within soft, sparse canvases call to mind the minimal compositions of Japanese scroll art. The exhibition will be on view until May 9th.

  • these are nice i like the negative space

  • I think these paintings are absolutely beautiful. They remind me of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; it seems that they are asking the viewer to remove themselves from the society we live in and the emphasis on perfection and beauty to go to a other-worldy place
