This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following text by Cate McQuaid is excerpted from The Boston Globe Theater & Art section, June 19, 2012, in an article titled "Review: Boston-area gallery exhibits"

Johannet takes inspiration (and borrows freely) from Roy Lichtenstein’s paintings of comic-book girls made in the 1960s. With their tears and their peril, they struck a chord with Johannet, who writes in her artist’s statement, “Lichtenstein’s works provide me with a rich opportunity to get thoroughly confused about who’s pining, who’s painting, who’s the seducer, who’s the love object, who started it, which side I’m on.”

She evidently wants to empower these girls, and does so with feminist snark in works such as “Battleground,” in which a woman in a beret shoots a rifle, exclaiming, “Is my body still a battleground?”

But Johannet also movingly dissects the delirium and anguish of young love. A poor boy named Brad plays the object of love and hate throughout the show — even though you might call the crisply beautiful young women in the paintings its objects of desire. In Drip, a blonde makes a painting joke: “Oh fooey, here comes Brad . . . where do I hide? He’s such a drip!”

Brad has broken the heart of whatever young woman animates the spirit of this show. A two-part painting installation, “Bad Breakup/Boston Whaler,” features small, bubbly circles of blue and black water with larger canvases that suggest disaster — such as a pink thought bubble that reads “I don’t care! I’d rather sink — than call Brad for help!” Nearby hangs the disc of a life preserver, stamped “Brad is a Cad.”

This all may seem like foolishness if you haven’t weathered the fevers of adolescent romance. Frankly, it’s a delight to see an artist take it so seriously. Like Locke, Johannet also charges the ramparts of sculpture. A Hole That Needs to Be Feeled is a white panel leaning against the wall with a pink-rimmed cartoon bubble cut out of it. The empty, baby blue bubble lies on the floor. That Brad! He’s left a boy-sized hole in our girl’s heart.
