Reflecting Johanna’s balance between “letting nature be” and scientific curiosity, this work was inspired by the way we experience our surroundings in a tangible way at a specific time, specific location, and through specific body parts (feet, in this case).
Works in Brooklyn, NY
What if we saw nature not as distinguishable things like trees, mountains, and soil, but as a cloud of influences that surround us? Harkening back to her memories growing up in nature and a personal interest in Ecofeminism, Johanna's method of printmaking is in itself a dialogue with nature. In cyanotypes, the intentional outlines of base drawings intermingle with spontaneous factors like the angle, brightness, and hue of sunlight - even the canvas it is printed on is candidly frayed at the edges. In her other prints also, watercolor-like effects make even the ground appear buoyant. You'll like Johanna if: you had a favorite tree growing up that you made sure to hug everyday.
