With my artwork, I hope to get people in touch with their child-like wonder about the world, and my retro-future robots touch on simpler times. I want my world to be happy, encouraging and playful, so that’s what I put into my paintings. I paint in acrylics, and experiment with different materials that might otherwise end up as landfill. For this Open Studios, I'm creating assemblages for the first time. A collector gave me a bunch of Science Lab drawers to paint on, and it seemed natural to use the 3-D space. I collected toys and mechanical parts, and flower shapes emerged. Enjoy! Johnny
