Coline Marotta paints characters who aspire to a slower form of existence, more concerned to engage in a dialogue with their direct environment. She paints failed intimacy, moments of miscommunication that demand a situation to be redefined. Mistakes are so nice. Coline (b.1991, France) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her work has been exhibited at PUBLIC Gallery, London; V1 Gallery, Copenhagen; Alice Folker Gallery Copenhagen; The Tennis Elbow, New York and Kunstverein Reutlingen, Germany.
