Johanna RiddleMixed Media
I design in total freedom– painting, printmaking, mark-making and using chemical alterations to create dynamic series of works on natural paper substrate. Building on the principle that the sum is greater than its parts, I weave together texture, color, and pattern, re-imagining the original series into mixed media compositions. Lately, I have been creating works that reference storyboards. Like a never ending, ever changing tale, the images in each series are open to being interpreted, interleaved, re-configured and expanded to tell fresh stories.
