① Artwork:

Female Stallion

This watercolor depicts the artist’s wife, Jina Khayyer, sitting cocksure in the mouth of an angry-looking, giant horse. The portrait was inspired by a moment passing the field where their neighbors' horses are kept. Khayyer observed how combatively the female defended her territory, calling her a ‘female stallion.’ The pair have since used this phrase as a synonym for strong women. 

Kate Groobey's work encompasses drawing, painting, live performance and video. Each of her compositions explores one of her personal experiences, depicting moments from her relationship with her wife. Groobey's work explores the androcentric canon of painting from a feminist and queer perspective. By employing the tactics of British humor—including innuendo, parody, absurdity, surreality, macabre and self-deprecation—Groobey offers up punchy depictions of the human condition.
