Lacey Johnson is a senior studying Art History at the University of
Alabama. Her paintings search for balance and are a visual metaphor of
herself. By seeing bright colors and pleasant imagery they initially
evoke happy emotions of contentment and delight, but as the viewer
divulges closer to the work one discovers the content of the sentences,
poems, broken thoughts that hide underneath the layers of paint and the
layers of who she is and the things that have filled her thoughts.
