Jamie Johnson creates intricate abstract landscapes that often hint at Scottish geology and folklore. Working across painting, collage, printmaking and video, his work explores cultural symbolism from both modern and ancient worlds, communicating observations and ideas by creating an autonomous visual language. Selected Drawings chronicles a group of works on paper made by the artist between 1991 and 2019, tracing the genesis of his unique take on characterisation and storytelling.
