In-depth oil paintings by artist Brett Allen Johnson portray the serene beauty of the American Southwest. His memories of magnificent desert landscapes dominated by crimson rock formations and covered in deep blue sky are meticulously captured in his artwork. They work together to get stunning images of the famous landscape.
Johnson’s fascination in the West was sparked when he visited his grandparents in Sedona, Arizona, and frequently traveled throughout his native state of Utah as a youngster. He started developing a distinctive style that highlights the light and contours of landscapes as a result of his skills in drawing, design, and painting. Johnson claims that here is where his work began and where it starts: “These badlands and deserts, the dry canyons, the playas, and the enormous basins.” His reproduced landscapes primarily focus on the environment; the people, animals, and even plants that coexist with it are just ornamental.
Even though they appear to be accurate representations of the desert, Johnson frequently concocted these images. He says, “I am not usually a painter of exact locales. “I frequently paint from memory or create entirely new pieces. I enjoy inviting onlookers into a parallel world, one that is just comparable to the one they are familiar with. maybe the West that’s close by. We commonly connect the Southwestern scenery with the towering red mountains, imposing cerulean sky, and cactus-dotted terrain that Johnson frequently depicts in his works. The odd horse and cowboy also add to the romance of these wide landscapes.
