Catherine Repko (b.1990), is a painter living and working in London.
"This year, the studio became filled with cheap print-outs of pixelated faces of my three sisters, faces from different angles, photographs of us together, now as women: embracing, hands held, fingers intertwined - a deep connection, empathy, love and history. Thinking about the space between us, as adults, how we support each other and what these female relationships mean to me as a woman now, I began painting. Four women."

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Catherine Repko’s works are concerned with the enduring continuity of the
relationship between her female figures and 'collective memory' of family dynamics.
She uses paint to reenact moments from the past and place them into a new context, where the line between fiction and memory is thin if not non-existent.
