About the Artist
Johannah Muriel is a Hackney-based artist and printmaker. Her mixed-media studies are concerned with paint and colour forming organically as paper emerges through the printing press. Johannah’s prints are the result of instinctive reactions to mainly natural references- inspiration taken from nature, everyday life or beauty found in decaying objects discarded by others. Works document the unpremeditated journey of oil paint as impulsive mark-making hits the paper.
Detailed hand-embroidery manifests on paper into organic forms- its delicate application working in deliberate contrast to the prints’ spontaneity of colour and abstract shape formations.
