Publisher Note

Peaceable Kingdom is the first book of collaborative work by the two American artists Chris Johanson (1968, San Jose) and Jo Jackson (1972, Springfield), partners in life and art, now living between Portland and New York.

All paintings feature a mix and match of both artists' styles, from Johanson's political, social themes and color patterns, to the oneiric, provocative and ambiguous side of human identity represented by Jackson's softer tones. Each painting being none like the other, and showing an incredible combination of shapes, forms, colors and ideas through a fascinating imaginary world, almost childlike.
