Martha Skou is an interdisciplinary artist who moves freely between audible and visual worlds. Both analytical and experimental, her work toys with opposites in color, shape and/or sound. She has created personal universes surrounding her work both in her collaborations and solo projects. Her language is abstract and atmospheric, with compositions in spatial formats as well as two-dimensional media.
Martha Skou has exhibited her work at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Telfair Museums, Savannah; and Pioneer Works, New York, among others.
