Celia Johnson is an artist, sometime writer, and lecturer based in Herefordshire.

She trained at Central St Martins (BA) and Cardiff School of Art (MFA Distinction) and lectures at Hereford College of Arts.

Working across a range of media, she uses walking and drawing as research methodology and performance, and is currently exploring the relationships and spaces between image, text and object, and the agency of the painted object/painting.  Her interests include scavenging, cover-ups, disguise and dissonance in relationship to the encounter with site and object.

An ongoing exploration of the relationship between illusion/representation and materiality informs her current investigation into the manipulated narratives constructed by, and in, an expanded painting practice that incorporates objects and words, assemblage and installation.

"I'm excited by surfaces and forms that obscure, cover up, that seduce and distract; in what is revealed and by what is smudged, scribbled over, altered, discarded or hidden.  By the carefully drawn and roughly copied; by what lies beneath and what is chosen for display.  By the perfect disguise."
