About the Artist
Johanna Bath (b.1980, Germany) is profoundly interested in the experience of time and the countless moments that define our lives. Her paintings seek to crystallise these brief experiences into dreamlike images that linger between the abstract and the visible world.
"If one experiences bad moments, the passing of time is definitely helpful, according to the saying "this too shall pass". But if they are beautiful moments, they always have something bittersweet (at least in retrospect). Time is constantly slipping away, and it is impossible to store even the most beautiful moment in one's memory, because the complex experience with its range of sensory perceptions such as smell/feel/sound can never be recalled entirely."
