My name is Johanna Porter- my art is tagged PicturesWithin.
I have always made art. I approach my work in the studio as therapy- to explore social, gender, environmental and political issues through the lens of my internal microscope. What results are visual allegories- tall tales of solitude and companionship, using a repository of organic shapes, animal symbolism and pervasive sub-tropical color.
My dreams and subconscious drive the work forward in unexpected ways. Each piece starts as a drawing on paper where I can process raw emotions. I then digitize the art and begin adding layers of color and form, slowly building until the underlying drawing is like a dream that is forgotten upon waking.
