Exploring Memory, History, and Loss
Seattle-based artist Clare Johnson is gaining recognition for her thought-provoking works that span visual art and writing. Johnson's pieces, ranging from dip pen drawing to poetry, delve into concepts of memory, history, and loss. Drawing inspiration from American artist James Castle's sense of wonder, Johnson's creative journey has led her to collaborate with the James Castle House, a center for exhibitions, tours, performances, and community partnerships. With degrees from Brown University and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Johnson has established herself as a multi-talented artist and teacher. Johnson’s artwork has been exhibited across the US and UK, including notable venues such as Oxford's North Wall and London's Guy's Hospital.
