The Cat Street Gallery is thrilled to present TOURIST, the first solo show in Hong Kong by British artist, Melanie Comber. Comber’s latest body of work features 12 paintings, each displaying the artist’s recognisable skill for applying paint and pigment to canvas, carving enigmatic perspective and spaces into her two-dimensional surfaces.

Comber’s palpably textural artworks were first seen here in Hong Kong, to great acclaim, as part of the ‘The British Cut’ group show in May 2012. The artist has continued to explore notions of spatial focus, toying with scale and distance as she layers and carves into paint, and dusts the surface with powdery pigment.
