Cob Gallery is proud to present a duo exhibition of works by Cat Roissetter and Tahmina Negmat for Artissima 2020. Both artists lend distinctive voices to, and challenge the seeming conventions of both painting and drawing.
Roissetter and Negmat’s works are brought together by way of comparing and contrasting their approaches to the application of unusual or found materials in and across their individual practices. Meanwhile, the comparison of these two artists for Artissima 2020 creates tensions between what is considered beautiful and what is considered grotesque. The mixed media, material rich works on display offer stark contrasts between the pristine and the crude and creates heightened mutability between allure and repulsion; brutality and grace; dream and nightmare.
