TAYLOE PIGGOTT GALLERY is pleased to present Pretty Shiny Stuff an exhibition of drawings by Berlin-based artist Astrid Köppe on view from February 21st through March 20th 2022.
Astrid Köppe is a German artist who explores the beauty of unknown and mysterious shapes through her detailed drawings of abstract forms. Köppe produces a cognitive dissonance in her viewers by complicating both the identification of the object as well as the aesthetic aspects of the work. She enjoys playing with the boundary of the beautiful and exploring the concept of the distasteful. Her drawings often depict shapes that are impossible to classify or name. Plant, animal, mineral, or some strange hybridized combination of these, each work defies classification.
