"New Works by California Artists: Mitchell Johnson"
2003-01-11 until 2003-03-09
Triton Museum of Art
Santa Clara, CA, USA United States of America

The Triton Museum of Art is pleased to present New Works by California Artists: Mitchell Johnson. This exhibition is part of the Triton's continuing series on New Works by California Artists and features this Menlo Park resident's large and small oil on linen work of painterly figure compositions reminiscent of David Park, Richard Diebenkorn and Joan Mitchell.

Mitchell Johnson is an artist who is above all, a colorist. He paints both directly on site and by memory in the studio. His oil on linen paintings are sensitive celebrations of nature, color, place and time.

Johnson, who moved to Palo Alto in 1990 from New York City, has found his own interpretation of figurative painting. His work shows an interesting melding of New York Figurative Painting and the art of the Bay Area. His particular use of color and gesture also shows a strong affinity for 20th century French painting, and are influenced by his teachers Paul Resika, Leland Bell, Larry Rivers and Robert DeNiro, Sr.

In addition to being included in over 200 private collections, Johnson's work is in the permanent collection of 10 U.S. museums. See Mitchell Johnson's webiste atwww.mitchelljohnson.com for further information about the artist. The Triton Museum of Art is located at 1505 Warburton Avenue in Santa Clara across from the Santa Clara City Hall. Hours are Daily from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, until 9:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Please phone 408.247.3754 for further details.
