Auckland-based artist Greg Johanson studied at Elam School of Fine Arts, graduating in 1999.
Johanson's work has its theoretical basis in an investigation of the structures and processes of our physical environment; his is essentially an appreciation of the beauty of the unseen, underlying order of the seemingly chaotic physical world. Each of Johanson's works are painstakingly created using a traditional
technique involving the application of multiple layers of gesso, each layer carefully sanded and refined to produce the specific chalky surface that allows the intricacies of Johanson's molecular motifs to shine through.
Having shown in several group exhibitions, Johanson held his first solo show in Auckland in 2000 and in recent years, his work has been selected to tour nationally with the Wallace Art Awards.
