Artist Henric Johansson.

Henric Johansson is an artist with a deep and passionate appreciation for beauty in the natural world and within the human spirit. This enthusiastic and sensitive joy is reflected strongly in his artwork. His work is executed in a vibrant, impressionistic style, which - while still retaining its representational roots, incorporates abstract elements, resulting in a uniquely contemporary union.

“Nature has provided me with a spiritual compass in life, and observing it and drawing it has always been, for me, the most rewarding way to honor that reverence. I believe that the knowledge gained through quiet observation, study and meditation is just as important as the actual application of paint to canvas.

Rather than go out into the landscape with the notion of ‘seeking’ a painting, I find that the stronger ideas appear to me, or are given to me, when I am hiking, making a fire, fishing, or meditating – when I am utterly ‘present’; when I am the student, the observer, and the recipient; when I ‘listen’ rather than impose my will.

For me a painting should be evidence of a process of observation and acquired knowledge rather than a concluding statement. The process, not the product, is the closest I have come to ‘living life’ in its truest sense.

Its always...only a thought away...
