Marta Gola, studio with works in progress

“My work is figurative, inspired by the presence of people and the physicality of the human body. This subject matter allows me to explore the fragility of being human, the flux and nuance of our inner thoughts, feelings and emotions.” Marta

She has completed a Bachelor of Fine Art Drawing at the Victorian College of the Arts, and currently is primarily working with drawing and mixed media to produce her large scale works.
