Kottie Paloma was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1974. Having lived and worked for several years in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Berlin, Paloma now lives and works in Vienna, Austria with his wife and two young children. Paloma's paintings explore the darker side of society in a humorous yet poignant and gritty manner. Heavily inspired by cave paintings and other archetypal symbols, Paloma creates works which look to act as fossils of contemporary life tackling subjects such as politics and human behaviour, to unpick the failings of modern society. The exhibition will see Paloma’s work through muddied colour reduction techniques, recalling the rawness of the earth, and the same primitiveness of the cave paintings that inspire him. Offering an unbridled view on people, cities, carvings, the artist
calls us home, translating different realms as unique symbols within his abstract works
