Martine Johanna recently opened a solo show at WALLS Gallery in Amsterdam entitled “The Grand Illusion of Sanity" which is on display until October 5th. The show is based on society’s demeaning view of women and the psychological effects this has on women. You can see a few more paintings from the show below!
I am a strong advocate for feelings to be completely valid and normal. Let those feelings be. Don’t invalidate people’s feelings just because you don’t understand them. You don’t have to control everything. Your mind is playing the role of a judge when it is just a mere thought, not a controller of environment. You feel the need to control. Accept it. Let it be. You are here and whatever you feel is okay. You will be okay, friend.
I’ve been waiting so long to find this.
