October 2013: Tom Johnson Pixelated landscapes
Tom‘s painting work offers pixelated geometries which question our perception of traditional landscape construction.
Through selection and placement of colour, landscapes are rendered placeless by pixellation, their narrative sufficiently disrupted so as to invite further interpretation; yet their deliberate ambiguity retains the language of The Landscape. From classical scenes to video games, these locations cannot help but feel familiar.
The process of pixellation removes recognisable points of reference to subvert logical comprehension of the landscape, in favour of a looser, more subjective narrative delivery. Each pixel is hand-painted: each tonal nuance the result of a decision that could have gone any number of ways.
