Monochromatic Melancholy

 

A new visual presence has made its way into my life.

 

 

Defined by beautiful soft focus landscapes,
desolate spaces and unrecognizable forms,
the work of Geoffrey Johnson is
enigmatic, seductive and otherworldly.

 

 

Human figures faded into almost transparent city landscapes;

 

 

monochromatic palletes and sepia tones;

 

 

an air of mystery fused with a veil of melancholy.

 

 

More of his work can be seen at Hubert Gallery

Special thanks to one of my favored blogger friends, Thom, whose new blog, Form is Void, is a source of wondrous imagery.
