Gallery artist Coline Marotta’s (b. 1991, France) second solo exhibition at the gallery ‘Night Emails to Friends’ opens Thursday 16 March.
Drawing from her interest in the ontological, Marotta's gentle expressionist paintings depict a mood of tranquillity, comfort and reconciliation. Her contemplative characters are long limbered, found in acts of embrace or reaching out, adding a sense of intimacy to the cramped spaces they inhabit.
Since finishing her MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2017), Marotta has exhibited at Mine Project (Hong Kong), The Tennis Elbow (NYC) and the Public Gallery (London), amongst others. Her work has been included in public collections including Statens Kunstfond, alongside multiple notable private collections. Marotta currently lives and works between Copenhagen and Marseille.
