Emma Hartvig

Through the Eyes of Others (2022)

Emma Hartvig 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. The figurative and nude elements of her work are 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 the University of the Arts, London. She has lived in Berlin, Paris and Copenhagen, and now has settled in Vienna, where she works on long-term projects exploring female narratives; the stories that we make, create and tell ourselves.
