Angela Davis Johnson creates works to reflect life from a Black femme experience. She descends from a line of healers, fighters, migrants, domestic workers, and creators who existed and labored in the South. Davis Johnson explores dreams, family stories, and ancestral memory through body movement in tandem with her vibrant narrative paintings. Her portraits are formed with paint, scrap paper, hollering, humming, light, and fabric. She is co-creator with muthi reed of Hollerin Space, an ongoing interactive collaboration. Her performances have taken place from front porches to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Her works can be found in both private and public collections. Davis Johnson, a lifelong sojourner, has roots in the Arkansas Delta and maintains her practice in Atlanta, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.
