Melanie Cobham is a 25 year-old Uruguayan Visual Artist, Illustrator and Product Designer interested in working with topics such as (self) perception and its distortion, the ambiguity of the real, patterns endlessly repeated in nature, among others.
Permanently oscillating between two and three dimensional grounds, she aims to represent a dual reality between figurative hyperrealism and the most absolute abstraction. Influenced by the work of Magritte, Schiele and contemporary artists Cornelia Parker, Doris Salcedo, and many others, she purposefully places her work under a lens, often imperceptible, that produces that friction between reality and fiction, between hyperrealism and abstraction, between art and life.
