Johnny Hooks’ Visual Art

An “Eye.” For as long as I have been taking photographs, people have remarked that I have a natural “eye” for composition, lighting and subjects.

I remember when I was in grade school, I was always drawing and doodling in class. One of the first pictures my teacher hung was an outdoor landscape.

From the top right hand corner where I placed the sun, a series of intersecting circles fell to the ground. When I was asked what they were I replied “Sunlight, just like you see on TV.”

Even then I was so used to seeing things through the lens of a camera that sunbeam were represented by their refractions.

The following images are examples of my work. I have begun transforming the photographs by transferring them to canvases and embellishing them with acrylic, wax, aluminum, gold or silver leafing and original poetry. Heavy, gallery-grade canvases approximately 1/2 inch thick sized 24″x 24″ or 24″x 36.” Framable but not necessary.

  1. I recommend something new, up to date. You wear your heart on your sleeve, then you take a picture of it and post it online, then you write about the feelings you had posting the photo. That’s something I’d like to read more about. It will be fun to see how you fair in Portland, OR, a city of artists, clowns, and gypsies.

    • Rob, Today…”lately” I should say, I feel like my eyes are open for maybe the first time ever. I very much appreciate your reading my blog and definitely taking the time to write to me.

      Your empathy has me very curious but for right now I’ll just be thankful you found another man who is “close” to you or your experiences.

      Thank you again,

      Johnny
