Based in London, Aby and Tess create artworks which explore realms of the fantastical and the absurd. They invite you to delve into a glittering scape of enchanting madness and divine macabre. A catacomb of vulgar colour and curious creatures that tells a story of its own.

About

Aby indulges in the liberation of the imagination. Creating imagery that is both sickly sweet and squeamishly dark. Her work harbours a surreal nature, creating a detached space for contemplation on how creativity and narrative manifests from the nostalgia of one's own daydreams. Aby makes work that combines intricate surrealist paintings, carnivalesque dolls, iridescent textiles art, enchanting installation, and chaotic collages, in a bid to explore the humour of the human mind, the transition from innocence to experience, and art as a fictional form of escapism. 

Tess conciders the effect of space and scale, particularly those reminiscent of the grotto, in connection to ideas of alienation and association. She pulls characters from her subconscious, disturbing yet relatable creatures who accentuate the air of dystopia which seeps through her work, and highlight an analysis of the decadent and self indulgent 'binge culture' which surrounds us. Tess explores frustration and numbness, disillusion and equally a fascination with a society which has sunk so deeply and comically into artificiality. Grotesque fantasy intertwines with her imagery and concepts, which are brought to life through a variety of mediums. She feeds off of the theatrical tones in life as well as its strange nuances, and has a particular penchant for garden gnomes.
