Born in Gothenburg in 1983, Martha is an artist and she lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.

She paints detailed images of hands in various positions or intertwined, making strange shapes out of the ordinary, she says about her works – “I approach different gestures and tactile and haptic games. Through a merging of the banal and the forbidden I open up ways to see new perspectives on the depicted act and what is inherent to it. Simultaneously, my paintings are also a way of depicting a multilayered curiosity regarding the body and the flesh. It is an ongoing exploration of inherited human behaviours, embedded mechanisms and embodied expression.”
