For the past forty years of living from his work as a professional painter, Christopher Johnson keeps returning to the themes of people, in their places, supported by colour, with the emphasis of “a light touch on a pedal that engages us directly with the present”. This can veer between the gift of silence and the chorus of life in a street – the ordinary is extraordinary enough for him.
