Lizard
(oil on canvas)

There is no price tag on this one so I think that it must be from Johni’s “experimental” catalogue. This is the stuff he does for himself, just for kicks. It might not sell as well, but damn it – isn’t art about expression?
To begin with it looks a simple painting. A gecko, or a small woodland lizard crawling through some flora. The lizard appears to have a something red in it’s mouth, possibly a tongue, which draws the eye into the centre of the artwork. But a closer reading of this work gives us much more. What does the gecko represent? Where is it going? What the hell is in it’s mouth?

Although it may not give any answers one thing is certain. This, friends, is less a painting, than a haiku. A really bad haiku.



My Ma says more paintings will come. Apparently Johni has them on rotation.
 

Yeah, yeah, email me
