Bidding starts at £50
Cathy Tabbakh is a French contemporary artist working in both France and the UK. Her work collides imaginary forms with existing landscapes through the use of both architectural and botanical elements. Her compositions incorporate a hint of surrealism and a saturated colour palette to punctuate emotive mood and shadows. Tabbakh’s bathroom series and recent still-lives show her desire to surround herself with green spaces combined with her love for contemporary interior design. Cathy exhibits regularly and works with international art advisors and curators.
In 2017, Tabbakh had her first solo show at L’Espace André Malraux in région Lyonnaise where she is from originally. In 2018, she was included in a group show at theprintspace, London. That same year, Tabbakh collaborated with Art on a Postcard, a charity organisation raising funds for the Hepatitis C foundation, which took place at The Other Art Fair, in Victoria House in London. In 2019, Tabbakh took part in another charity auction which raised funds for Reprive, a charity focussing on Human rights protections. This partnership continues via Planar Editions, an online design store selling prints in benefit for Reprieve, of which Tabbakh’s work is included. In London, she has been included in Delphian Gallery’s summer exhibition in 2019, also in a group show last summer with Bowes-Parris Gallery at Blue Shop Cottage. During lockdown, she was included in the “Lockdown Editions”, a print release by Delphian Gallery to help artists during the pandemic. She will be returning to Art on a Postcard for their October auction in London. Tabbakh also has an online presence via Bowes - Parris Gallery in London, and The Curators, an art platform based in NYC selling and promoting emerging artists. Cathy will also be showcasing works with Maison Contemporain next month, a Parisian platform. She will also be returning at The Other Art Fair in a group show curated by Aida Wilde next March.
