Wanderlust is an international group exhibition inspired by travel, far-away places, adventurous experiences and fascinating destinations. Participating artists were given identical postcards and asked to create a unique piece for the show inspired by the theme “wanderlust”. Travel via boat, plane, foot, and yes, even jellyfish to your favorite destination in this eclectic and imaginative exhibition!
Johnie Thornton was born and raised in Southern California and is currently living & working as an artist in Palm Springs and Los Angeles.
Thornton’s body of work ranges from medium format analog photography to photo realistic, pop, and abstract painting. His work is largely influenced by sociology, geometry, architecture, and their relationship to nature.
As a self-taught artist, Thornton draws inspiration from experience and environment. Thornton has developed a unique painting style while experimenting with many different mediums both traditional and unconventional.
“My work focuses on depth, color, and form. My current body of work uses geometry as an expression of movement, communication and growth to explore the uneasy relationship between humans and nature. Through the manipulation of image and plain, I create an environment of both ease and discomfort, examining an inner struggle between the appreciation and disdain of man’s creations and accomplishments.”
