Paintings by Martine Johanna
Martine Johanna is a Dutch painter mostly known for her acrylic paintings on linen and wooden panels. Her works are hyper-saturated, seemingly light, but explore the duality between youthful naivety and anxiety-riddled adulthood. Female figures, fierce but fragile, often crowd the compositions and occupy the majority of the space gazing distractedly into the beyond. Making the viewer a voyeuristic part of the work. The paintings are visually stimulating and cheeky while expressing an underlying sense of uncertainty and unrest. Martine Johanna lives and works in Amsterdam.
