Angela Davis Johnson
Angela Davis Johnson, informed by the wisdom of the matriarchs in her family, creates paintings, sculptures, installations, and ritual performances to examine and archive the technologies of black folks. Merging art into a contemplative practice she embodies Live Dreaming - a process of deep listening, imagining, constructing, and recording personal + community ancestry. She generates experiential spaces to bring personal and communal healing around poverty, displacement, and state sanctioned violence. Co -creator of the Hollerin Space, an ongoing experimental healing installation, Davis Johnson has performed in several states in the regional south. Her works can be seen in galleries, museums, and private collections throughout the United States. When she is not traveling, the mother of two, lives and holds space in Atlanta, GA.
