Miles Johnston (United Kingdom) is an artist and atelier instructor currently working out of southern Sweden. Using predominantly graphite on paper Johnston slices away and deforms his figures. Drawn with subtle gradients and shading the works have a light but mesmerizing effect on first view. Johnston seems to morph his figures with their surroundings creating surreal scenes and dream like imagery. The works are made to function as open ended visual metaphors for the viewer to contemplate and place themselves within.
