Marta's Marfa Stance

Signature Reversible Quilt in Navy & Reversible Trench Coat & Reversible Quilted Vests in Olive

Tell us about yourself/ your background

I'm a Czech-American artist born in Holland, raised mostly in the U.S., and currently living in Rome. My work addresses themes related to our human understanding of the natural world. In my practice I often use inks that I make myself from botanical or organic materials like flowers, tree barks, or found earth pigments.

How do you style your Marfa Stance piece?

The trench is such a strong piece that I never feel I need to do much. I like that palette of the trench (I have the green) inspires me to try on more color and generally wear less black. Most days I'm going back and forth between my home, my sons's preschool, and my studio. Often I stop somewhere along my way to forage for some ink-making materials, so I guess I style my coat with things I collect like the wildflowers or leaves that often end up sticking out of my pockets.
