view The Virtual Tour
Ynez Johnston makes dramatic use of jewel-like colors and bold lines as she references romantic and mystic cultures. The viewer is guided through fantastic kingdoms, exotic structures and magical settings that suggest teeming cities, ambiguous landscapes, voluptuous royal trappings and improbable vehicles.
From the Whitney Museum of American Art to the Art Institute of Chicago, from San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts to the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, her art has been celebrated in solo exhibitions. Galleries from Los Angeles, London, Chicago, Tokyo, New York and others throughout Europe and the United States have followed with their own solo shows.
Ynez Johnston excites the imagination that lies within most of us!
