Marta Amigo is a visual artist from Barcelona, who joined us for the month of August 2017. She works using trans-disciplinary techniques and formats, in an exploration of ‘identity’ and it’s relation to space and objects. The process of often begins with visual mapping, and consideration of key words and themes, which then develop through a mixture of drawing, illustration, multi-media, and ceramic work.

Here in Stöðvarfjörður, Marta spent time on various bodies of work, taking influence from the space and territory of the fjord, and her travels around Iceland; focussing on the local houses, and the volcanic geography of the country. During her stay, Marta also enjoyed becoming part of a community with the other artists in residency, and together they spent time hiking and playing music, forming a band, named the ‘Vicious Fishes’.
