This Friday’s featured artist is Emma Johnson (no relation to last week’s featured artist Bryce Johnson).
Emma Johnson lives in England. She is a visual artist, working mainly with installation and mixed media.
Her work deals with issues of deconstruction and transformation, the recycling of materials, and the ambiguity of communication.
