Will Johnstone, Artist

About Will Johnstone      

I grew up along the westward stretch of old Hwy 66, in the north valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico, among the alfalfa fields and irrigation ditches of the Rio Grande, between the Sandia Mountains and the volcanoes, the Rio Puerco, San Ysidro, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Socorro and Belen. I began painting in the colors of the mountains and mesas, arroyos and deserts, turquoise days and deep dark nights in which I hiked and lived and dreamed.

  Cloud Structure: Acrylic on Canvas  

For me, art has been my brush with canvas and paint, beauty into silver, relief into stone, ink onto paper. In this dance of mind and hands and eyes and media, art is a process of experiential expression, like whistling off of the top of a midnight moonlit mountain or yodeling face forward into a strongly blowing wind. In art, I am immersed into the processes of expressive experimentation and the momentum of creative discovery. Sometimes, it works!
