An exhibition of paintings, collage, altered objects and moving image by Eden Kötting with Andrew Kötting @ SEE SPRAY Art Gallery. The show will run from 6th January until 25th January 2019 and is dedicated to the late great David Spiller. The works were inspired by the themes of dogs, pollution, belief-systems, the post-apocalyptic, dead souls, water, flowers and love.
Eden was born in 1988 and grew up in London, developing a keen interest in drawing and painting from an early age. She has shown work in Belgium, Switzerland, France and Germany as well as in London, Brighton, St Leonards-on-Sea and at HOME in Manchester.
Eden has collaborated on various art projects with her father Andrew, including the feature films; Gallivant, This Our Still Life and By Our Selves. They have also presented work as installations at The Towner in Eastbourne and as performances; In The Wake of a Deadad, This Illuminated World is Full of Stupid Men, By Our Selves and Hiding from the Big Guns at The Barbican in London.
They make art as they breathe, hard and fast and memorable; paintings, postcards, installations, rants, poems and freewheeling film ‘songs’…. Eden ventriloquizes her father to provide the written text for her drawings and paintings that are already replete with meaning…. she provides a commentary and series of foot notes for the Grand Projects that her father is undertaking…. An agenda or appendix in a different form and much truer or closer to the original sign makings and drawings on the walls of caves….
