Affective Bodies

Solo exhibition by LeeAnne Johnston

The internal landscape of the body is a complicated space. Through her work, LeeAnne represents the layers of scars and wounds inflicted upon our psyche as a result of trauma and time. Growths, malformations, and grooves form the dialogue of intangible experiences. These marks upon the figure represent the hidden struggle of mental illness and invisible pain.

 

Biography

LeeAnne Johnston received a BFA from the Univeristy of Alberta in 2015. Drawing influence from comic books and folklore she explores ways to represent intangible experiences with a focus on mental illness and chronic pain. Her work emphasizes imperfect markmaking, stream of consciousness, and finding comfort within the uncomfortable.
