The first thing we researched when we came across the paintings of Johanna Bath was this simple declaration "I am madly in love with life." That is a great place to start, because sometimes a painter just needs to love the life they are inspired by. Maybe, in her distorted and almost hazy representations of life and in her fate to become an artist, she finds life just a little more exhilarating.

After seeing the German-born painter's work at Pipeline Contemporay in London and a residency at the Fores Project in 2023 and 2024, Radio Juxtapoz's Doug Gillen sat down with Bath to her about her route to the art world and her lust for life.
