German artist Johanna Bath creates figurative paintings that consider the construct of time. Her highly poetic portraits and shadowy Still Life scenes explore alternate ways of viewing and experiencing the passage of time.

Johanna Bath’s Early Career and Practice

Johanna Bath studied Illustration and Design in Hamburg and graduated in 2007. After working for a gallery and a publishing house, she soon craved the creativity of hands-on studio practice. Before long, she chose to solely focus on her painting career. Johanna endeavours to convey the bittersweet transiency and impossibility of preserving moments in time. Taking something invisible, the artist whips up emotion and memory, capturing an almost palpable sense of time on canvas. Her approach is simultaneously personal, intuitive, impulsive, traditional, and resolutely modern. Johanna works with oils, acrylics, and spray paint on canvas, using materials to translate profound and personal thought into form.

Exhibitions and Recognition

After several local exhibitions across Germany, she gained recognition from an international audience in 2017, thanks to Saatchi Arts classing her as one to watch. She has also received mentions in Flux Magazine, among other publications. Her work is now held in private collections worldwide, including in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, France, Norway, Switzerland, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and North and South America. The CAC (Contemporary Art Collectors) selected Johanna for the Emerging Artist Programme of 2022.
