"I have seen landscapes ...which, under a particular light, made me feel that at any moment a giant might raise his head over the next ridge. Nature has that in her which compels us to invent giants, and only giants will do." -- C.S. Lewis

The same is true of the greenmen and unicorns and other fey beings that exist at the visible edges of this world. Do we see them only with the eyes of our spirit? And does the answer to that question really matter?

The old maps used to say "here there be dragons." Modern man laughs at their naivete or assumes it was simply metaphor. But was it? It is a grand paradox that we learn more of truth as we become more comfortable with mystery -- when we accept the fact that we do not know all the answers, nor do we need to.

Artist Cathy (Kate) Johnson explores this world beyond imagination in paintings, drawings, sculpture, and mixed media assemblages, combining classical techniques with modern archival materials. Original works of art, both painting and sculpture, dominate this show; they are yours to own.
