Encounters of The House of Fairy Tales
Olive Oil, Oil Pastel & Turpentine
Cat Roissetter's drawings are inspired by the ritualistic qualities of ceremony and myth. Drawn to the traditional compositions of visual narrative found in frescos she likes to incorporate her own themes of imagined dystopias and histories. Often using the image of the child as a central theme she constructs ambiguous scenes depicting characters taking part in a nonsensical world.
The Encounters of The House of Fairy Tales explores the recent adventures of The House of Fairy Tales, from the travelling art circus at Camp Bestival and Latitude, to Grave and Grave, the ghostly recruitment agency at St. Pauls, London.
