This 128 page hardcover monograph, published in 2007, features texts in both English and Italian as well as 50 color plates. For more than twenty five years, Mitchell Johnson has simultaneously explored the expressive potential of abstract and figurative painting. Well known for his modernist landscapes of Europe and California, Johnson began exhibiting large abstract paintings in 2006 that reveal a new and distilled approach to color and shape. This new monograph, featuring an essay by Marilena Pasquali, considers the advantages of Johnson's double track or "doppio binario" and sheds light on the origins of both his mode of working and way of seeing color. Mitchell Johnson paintings have appeared in various films and television shows including The Holiday, As Good as it Gets, The Lodger, Failure to Launch, It s Complicated, and Ugly Betty". Paintings have also appeared in ArtWeek, Art in America, The New York Time Magazine, Traditional Home, ArtNews, Palo Alto Weekly, Sunset Magazine, American Artist, SouthWest Art, In Natural, Mountain View Voice and San Jose Mercury News. Johnson's work is in over 20 US Museums.
