TINA SALAMA and KORSHI DOSOO
An assembly line of toy guns is not an invitation to play nor a comment on violence. By placing objects amongst masses of themselves, Tina's work uses repetition to break down the logic of subject and object. The effect is a mental jarring and with it, a challenge to discriminate.
TINA SALAMA is an architect and philosopher who spends her life fascinated by light, logic and toys.
Korshi's paintings are delicately constructed with vibrant colours and spectacular penmanship where animals lie comfortably with their prehistoric ancestors. Cute meets field drawing as Korshi takes us into his world of imaginary animal relationships.
Korshi Dosoo has just completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the College of Fine Arts, Sydney. He wore a kilt, collared shirt and tie to his grad show. www.lairofthetwistedkitten.co.uk
