Martine Poppe (b. 1988, Norway) lives and works in London. She graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art BA and MFA in 2011 and 2013 respectively. Poppe's works combine photography with painting; she obscures the relationships between the two by layering her photographs with transculent layers of paint. The result is a feathery effect which relies heavily on the influence of light. Poppe recent solo shows include Portraits of Trees at Trafo Kunsthall, Asker, Norway (2018), Aphrodite lowers her mirror, Kristin Hjellegjerde (2018), CCA Andratx residency, Majorca (2017), Art Brussels, Kristin Hjellegjerde (2017), Untitled San Francisco (2017), Crinkled Escape Routes and Other Somewhat Flat Things, Kristin Hjellegjerde (2016), Volta 12, Kristin Hjellegjerde (2016), 50% Grå at Trafo Kunsthall, Norway (2015). Poppe has also recently shown in the group exhibitions Imago Mundi, Benetton Collection (2018), Liste, VI, VII , Basel (2018), Between the Lines, Kvinnemuseet/ The Women's Museum.
