Johnson’s first sculpture, Stainless Girl, won the grand prize in the U.S. Steel Design in Steel Competition. Later, his realistic bronze works won him accolades across the globe. His sculptures of humans performing familiar tasks in an ordinary life were meant to collect the “Beautiful Moments” in our lives. Johnson’s goal was not to just create figures performing routine tasks, but also to celebrate the familiar and to recognize the great value within. These familiar tasks can often seem burdensome, but they are part of what makes us human and connects us to others.
