Mr & Mrs Philip Cath

Mr & Mrs Philip Cath are a husband and a wife collaborative duo.

Their mostly monumental paintings are a knowing amalgamation of art historical, historical and contemporary social reference points. Drawing on the universal within personal and personal within the universal they embody a synergising of art and life. Their practise involves multiple processes including research, dialogue, performance, sculpture and installation, where resultant paintings might be displayed singularly, or with sculptural elements, or be ritually destroyed. This intriguingly rigorous approach thrusts Mr & Mrs Philip Cath into the contemporary conceptual arena while they simultaneously revert back to historical tropes. Every painting is the result of building tableaux within the studio and painting from life with no photographic processes, thus recalling directly the methodologies of traditional historical and still life painting.
