Marketa’s practise is closely linked to her personal life. There are no boundaries between the artist and the viewer. Through drawing, painting and bookmaking she is sharing her internal experiences in work that has the intimacy of a personal diary.
Currently she is exploring the subject of motherhood, mother-artist and female energy. The body’s transformation, experienced as transition – from girl to woman, daughter to mother – is a central them in the work.
