“Balancing Act” by Artist Martine Johanna

A collection of new paintings and drawings by artist Martine Johanna (previously featured here). Vibrant and unsettled, the works in Balancing Act continue Martine’s exploration of the female psyche as they place women in uncanny situations, highlighting their internal landscapes:

“Her heroines visibly grapple with the weight and tension of the expectations that society has placed on them. The figures’ internal dilemmas, made visible through concentrated facial expressions and calculated postures, spill into their surroundings, manifesting in rainbows, fractured and hemorrhaging color fields, and even levitating objects.”
