Black & White with Ease – Geoffrey Johnson

I’ve been sitting here looking through Black &White (the book from my previous post) trying to figure out to incorporate it into my everyday life. Other than the obvious solutions of outfitting my room with monotones and paint, how do you truly inject the black and white theme and add a touch of color without a pop? It’s more challenging than it seems. The idea is to enjoy it, not letting your eye abruptly stop at the color, but rather breeze by with ease. I started to brainstorm artists who paint in black and white and appear to think in black and white.  One of my favorite’s came to mind. Geoffrey Johnson.

He for the most part, gives the feeling of black and white to create majestic cityscapes. They are extremely rich in hue, but seamlessly transparent at the same time. He came out with a series of works where he blended more exuberant color with his contrast. Successful? You be the judge.
