Johanna calls her photographs paintings, because they go far beyond capturing specific objects. Her works observe natural details with a specific tenderness that turns them into an abstract expression of complex emotions and moods. The process of every painting starts with an analog camera, whose image is then lifted from the polaroid photo and carefully transferred onto another surface. The installations she builds around them are filled with the sounds of nature, she records herself, so that image and sound can smoothly take us to the delicate boundary between the outer forest and our inner one. And although her works seem to be deeply introspective and contemplative, Johanna is an extrovert brimming with energy. Maybe this is the reason her paintings sound so melodious and resonant.
