Sarah Olivia Johnston (She/Her)

 

Sarah Olivia Johnston is a Scottish Artist based in Glasgow, working primarily through the medium of painting.

“Sometimes, I can feel an uncomfortable sense of familiarity in places I’ve never seen before, ominous yet nostalgic. My work investigates this feeling, visually translated through re-imagined landscapes that sit between reality and my subconscious.

To produce a painting, the memories of reoccurring places in my dreams work in combination with my real-life surroundings. Further aided by experiences within our own mind, or outside of our reality, questioning whether or not they are unique. Investigating the circumstances, where they can be shared by more than one individual, offer validity to conspiracy. Describable, but not always visually documentable, and unimaginable un- less experienced, my work looks at lucid dreaming, Liminal Spaces, Alien abduction and dimensional exploration.”
