Colette LaVette

Mythological narratives form the framework of Colette's paintings. Biomorphic forms can be found emerging from the expressionist marks. The gestures and postures of the figures, together with the composition of light are reminiscent of Rococo and Renaissance masterpieces, reformulated in a contemporary painterly language. At the centre of both her personal life and art practice is her passion for sustainability, as well as her interest in geological and biological history.

Colette has most recently exhibited her debut solo show ‘In Reverie’ with Purslane and has exhibited work at Paul Smith, Act One Gallery, and OXO Tower Wharf. LaVette has been featured widely in the press, was June 2022 artist of the month in Country Homes magazine and has been included in publications such as 'Little Book of Artists’ by KellyJay. Her original works sit in collections around the world, including Hong Kong, France, Germany, Iceland and USA.

"These works are predominantly a comment on beauty emerging from chaos." — Colette LaVette
