ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

The magic of the forest comes to life in the artwork Woodland. This series of whimsical and psychedelic images traces the four seasons across Lafarge Lake–Douglas SkyTrain Station. Since 2020, artist Sarah Anne Johnson has been documenting the forests around her home in Manitoba. She began this meditative practice early in the COVID-19 pandemic, as a way to find and share calm during uncertain times. She then transforms the photographs with Photoshop, paint, metal leaf, holographic tape and photo-spotting ink.

The artist creates these images to more honestly reflect her personal experience with the landscape. Johnson takes inspiration from sacred architecture, studies of trees’ intelligence and her spiritual connection to the forest. In these works, the artist portrays what she calls the “healing power of the forest” through a kaleidoscope of colours. Her colour prisms bring to light unseen dimensions found within nature.
