Joan of arc – captured by order, transcending by fire, knight of faith.

The top of the painting is silver, difficult to photograph.

Painted with much intensity, and very fast, several consecutive days –  there is a lot of raw energy in this one.

Thematically, I feel this painting encapsulates much of what I am attempting to accomplish with these grid paintings – to pass through the neutral form of the grid and achieve expression of something human, intense, passionate – to have faith in the transformative capability of art.

– Michael Burris Johnson, March 2014
