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. Muriel’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- it’s delicate application working in deliberate contrast to the prints’ spontaneity of colour and abstract shape formations.
