Tim Johnson
painting ideas

A visionary and often eclectic search for artistic and spiritual connections between cultures and countries is at the core of Tim Johnson’s art. This major survey exhibition ranges from Johnson’s light performances, films and artist books of the early 1970s to his mature collaborative paintings.

The exhibition focuses on the humanist conceptual project that underlies Johnson’s practice, his engagement with Aboriginal culture and belief in collaboration, and his search for spiritual meaning influenced by Buddhist and other philosophies.

Organised by the Art Gallery of NSW and the Queensland Art Gallery.
