Fine Art

Johanna Tonner

Through spontaneity and play my practice centres around the anxiety and pressure which comes with being a woman in society. Using multiple disciplines including photography, printmaking and sculpture my work deals with themes of femininity and mental health, aiming to portray the strength and vulnerability of women. Manic, vibrant prints, representative of the mind, are transformed into large scale soft sculptures which viewers are encouraged to hug, sit on and feel, creating a sensual, comforting experience in which people can feel free from their anxieties, whilst holding on to sculptures that symbolise them. Distortion of the female form is achieved through experimental dark room techniques and layering. Sculptures, prints and photographs are then merged together creating a dreamy aesthetic and obscure art works which combine a state of mind and a physical form.
