Jaime Johnson

Artist Statement

Untamed chronicles the intimate relationship of a feral woman and her surrounding natural environment. She collects the bones, branches, and flora of her world and treads with the animals, both dead and living. The cyanotype process shifts focus from potentially colorful landscapes and figures to patterns, textures, and the relationships of forms within the images. Each of us is a part of a shared experience until we fade to bone, and bone into Earth. The Wild Woman is our messenger calling us to return to our ancestral past. I find her in the rustling woods, fields, streams, swamps, riverbeds, and hear her voice throughout the land, calling us home.
