EARLY WORK

“There are a number of artists in recent years associated with the University of New Mexico who have produced disturbing and unforgettable photographic images; Joel Peter Witkin perhaps the most well known among them. Christy Johnson’s work matches Witkin’s in its power to disturb and call to full force subversive agendas of the human psyche. But where his photographs remained locked within the conventions of their medium, Johnson has flagrantly violated many of the aesthetic precepts of convention. The net affect is that she has produced physical objects charged with the elusive energy that is in itself the subject of her imagery.  This represents the very best of what a contra-conventional manipulation of media has to offer for the expression of deeply held humanistic concerns.” Jason Knapp
