Duncan Macdonald Johnson

I have been living in the Tywi Valley since 1992 when I came here to study at Carmarthenshire College of Art, then based at Gelli Aur.  I paint landscapes in a variety of mediums purely 'en plain air'.  I welcome you to my home and studio at Great House.

My art represents an attempt to capture an experience of the landscape of West Wales.  Rather than trying to create a photographic sense of realism, I hope to communicate something about the spirit of a place, drawing inspiration from its sounds and smells, its atmosphere and the feelings it provokes.

My painting seems to me inseparable from my sense of belonging in the landscape.  I will often return many times to a location to paint it, getting to know it more deeply as i do so.  I feel that this way of working helps to infuse the paintings with a consciousness of the passing of time and season.  Having said that, I do not wish to reflect an idealised view of the landscape, rather, I aim for a truthful balance between 'wild' nature and the immense and ever changing impact of human activity on the land.
