Martine Johanna: Psychic Landscapes
There is a duality in Dutch painter Martine Johanna’s artwork that reveals itself between, as the artist puts it, “the visible and nonvisible world.” Warm, vibrant colors pull you in, while cooler ones push you away. Entranced eyes gaze outward, away from the viewer, but invite you to peer inside at a complex assortment of thoughts and emotions, exposing what feels like everything and nothing all at once. As she prepares for her first solo show in the US, "Dancer," at Spoke Art in San Francisco, Johanna chats with us about feeling as opposed to seeing, momentum, collective memories, and learning the value of the present.October 07, 2016

Snow and Rose & Other Tales: The Vintage Nudes of Marianna Rothen
Marianna Rothen is the type of photographer that leaves you instantly enamoured. Infatuation perhaps but there’s something about her work that simply captivates and reels you in from the very beginning. The beautiful vintage aesthetic, the implied narratives, the 60’s inspired nostalgia, the (all female) models themselves — truth is, we love ALL of it.May 27, 2016
Martine Johanna "Happy Days" @ Bright Side Gallery
On May 21st Bright Side Gallery will present Happy Days; a solo exhibition by Martine Johanna. Unlike Johanna's exhibition at the gallery two years ago, where she worked from a well-defined concept, the artist now chose to be led by intuition and form research. This led to a new visual language with room for experiment.May 18, 2016
