The art of Jeremy Johnson has been described as “riveting”, “captivating”, and “intense”. I am the one who said all those things, but it’s true anyway.
Johnson manages to say a lot while using little, though his canvases are rather sizable.
You can see his work through the spring season at Sagebrush Cafe in Quartz Hill, the AV’s up-and-coming, not-a-secret-anymore coffee & art house. (I’m one of the owners, did you know? And I personally invite you to come in and take a look at this gallery show, which will impress you. I practically guarantee it.
We’re also offering a limited time chance to actually win a piece from Johnson’s LIMITLESS SHOW…)
This is what Johnson has to say about his art and himself (from his website):
My name is Jeremy Johnson and I am from Ottawa, IL.
Ever since I was a child, I loved working with my hands and being very artistic.
My career began with welding but soon took a turn when I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor in the cerebellum at the age of 30. During my rehabilitating I decided to brush up on what I used to love, creating art. I started painting and found my passion again.
Life’s not what we want it to be, it’s what we make it. So do what makes you happy! Love what you do, do what you love! Positive attitude is key in life. Enjoy the scenery and cherish the moment.
I’d love to be able to donate to hospitals for research and development. The most important thing in life is our health. Without the help of the Mayo Clinic I wouldn’t be where I’am today. People that help are people that care!
Never stop living!
