Emma Hartvig (b.1990) is an artist who is best known for her portraits of women. Her work is highly influenced by her desire to understand the parallels between solitude, intimacy and identity - through her use of the sculptural, performative and theatrical. The figurative and nude elements of her work is an ongoing study of the power and complexity in female representation, the historical and mythical image of the woman and their own self-perception. Born and raised in Sweden, Hartvig moved to London where she completed a BA in photography at University of the Arts. She lived in Berlin, Paris and Copenhagen, and eventually settled in Vienna, where she works on long term projects exploring female narratives; the stories that we make, create and tell ourselves.
