With a career spaning over 40 years, Ken has exhibited extensively both in Australia, as well as overseas. His work is held in collections worldwide, including The National Museum of Damascus, Syria, the Presidential Palace in Israel, Bank of America, Newcastle Regional Art Gallery and Edith Cowan University.
His iconic style is characterised by emotive depictions of the Australian coastline and outback, using an acute eye and deft painterly touch to reveal its subtle beauty and the ephemeral nuances of atmospheric change.
“My work is an exploration of a deep and lifelong fascination with elements and relationships between the balance of forms and the transference of light and the mood generated by the ever changing aspects of elements within nature, metaphorically expressed as a “stage “ using nature as performers.
What draws me to this unique and sumptuous region of the Bay of Fires is how a symbiosis of natural elements interact, creating moods and characters…each individual performance enhancing the éclat of nature at play.” – Ken Johnson 2019
