Johnson’s work harnesses the rich symbolism and histories of varied materials that have personal meaning and, at times, are signifiers of greater African American cultural identity. Black soap, made from the ashes of burned plant matter and commonly used in West Africa, is mixed with wax and applied as pigment onto the white tiled surface—for Johnson, a way of complicating associations of cleanliness and healing.
