Cathy Tabbakh

Cathy Tabbakh is a French contemporary artist working in the UK. Her colourful work collides imaginary forms with existing landscapes through the use of architectural and botanical elements. She holds degrees in Fashion Textile and Fine Art and Art History and Archaeology - both in Lyon, France her native city. Cathy’s bathroom series and still-lifes show her desire to surround herself with gree spaces combined with her love for interior design. Since lockdown, she has been focusing on still lifes and the shadows they create, working on the simplicity of a composition based on light, introducing a link with time itself within the painted scene. Tabbakh mainly uses pots, vases, plants and surreal objects from her home - lockdown pushed her to simply look around and find inspiration in the everyday objects that can easily be forgotten. Recently, she introduced ceramics into her practice, reflecting the style of her still-lifes compositions whilst aslo making her own frames. She works with international art advisors and curators and exhibits regularly. Some highlights include several shows with Delphian Gallery since 2019, San Mei Gallery, The Every Woman Biennal, Maison Contemporain and more, mostly in the UK and Europe. In 2022, Cathy will also be showing for the first time in the USA, Australia and Belgium.

Most recently, the artist was commissioned by Soho House to produce two works to be included in their permanent collection and displayed in their brand new Paris location.

Court Tree Collective was established in 2013 by a group of artists and creatives with the primary purpose of representing and supporting the work of emerging and established contemporary artists. Since its opening Court Tree Collective has been a staple to south Brooklyn’s emerging art scene and in a short time has exhibited a number of important exhibitions. In addition they have curated a number of exhibitions at satellite locations throughout the states and abroad.

We are a family-run art gallery specializing in emerging artists to offer a unique and intimate experience for art enthusiasts. Court Tree Collective showcases outsider art, which often defies traditional artistic conventions, alongside works by up-and-coming artists to add depth and diversity to the gallery's offerings. Visitors can expect to encounter raw, authentic expressions of creativity that challenge perceptions and ignite curiosity. By nurturing rising talent and championing unconventional voices, the gallery plays a vital role in fostering a vibrant and inclusive art community.

Our gallery is curated by artists for artists, which fosters a dynamic and supportive environment where creative visionaries can thrive. With firsthand understanding of the artistic process, the curators can showcase works that resonate deeply with both artists and audiences. This curated space celebrates diversity, innovation, and experimentation; it provides a platform for emerging and established artists to connect, collaborate, and showcase their talents. By upholding a community-driven approach to curation, the gallery becomes a vibrant hub for inspiration, dialogue, and artistic exchange.︎
