Catherine Repko (b.1990) is a painter based in London. She completed a foundation in Art and Design at Chelsea College of Art in 2010 and received her BA in Visual Communication from the University of Brighton in 2013. Catherine is currently attending the Royal College of Art for an MA in Painting and will graduate in 2021.
Being the third of four sisters, Catherine's current practice explores this relationship. She is interested in their relationship growing up together and what connects them now as adults. The impact sisterhood has had on her wider relationships outside of family comes into play too. Her work takes an intimate look at family relationships, but also explores contemplations surrounding identity - what it means to be a mother, daughter, woman, or even human. At a time that feels increasingly polarised, both socially and politically, Catherine’s work is looking at what ties us together.
Recent group exhibitions include; Repko + Whitehead, Blue Shop Cottage, London (2020); The Autumn Auction, The Auction Collective, London (2020); All These Gestures, Bowes-Parris Gallery, London (2020). Repko is the recipient of The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation in 2020 and the Triangle Network Fellowship from The Arts Council England in 2016.
