Melanie Johnson makes large-scale figurative drawings and paintings, working from observation and composite sources. Narrative is employed loosely in her work and she draws primarily on what is familiar as a catalyst for making. She wants the physical drawing or painting to encapsulate imagery representative of a lived moment as well as the history of its own manifestation. Johnson received her MFA in Painting from Indiana University and is an Associate Professor of Art & Design at the University of Central Missouri.
