My human went to an art opening over the weekend. The show was called “A Point of View of a Cat” and many of the pieces on display paid homage to the feline mystique — introducing “the cat as a narrative form, as well as a vehicle for exploration of material and space.” The show’s art included both cat scenes and cat “artifacts.” The above piece, Cat Walk by Rebekah Clendening, comes under the cat artifact category, as it includes cat toys and cat hair in its makeup.
One of the stranger pieces was called Lost: Human by Tina Marrin. The cats were created on toilet paper! We kitties are really trying to create art when we claw rolls of toilet paper, but I have to say, Ms. Marrin has us beat at this!
There was even a library of cat books and magazines. Sadly, my books were not included. My human was tempted to leave a copy of Dear Sparkle with the others but didn’t. I really think she should have — it would have been an awesome expression of guerrilla art!
Along with these more unusual pieces were some more traditional paintings and prints. My human was enchanted by this digital print by artist and animator Nancy Jean Tucker. It is called Friday, and the eyes you see are actually her cat. I think she should have named the piece Sofa Monster, but that is just me. My human liked this so much that she asked about it, and it was very reasonably priced, so she is buying it! She will probably put it up in our office.
If you want to see more of the art show, you will find additional photographs on my human’s own photo blog.
I wish my human was more well-connected in the art world because I really think I should have been part of this show. Having cat art by an actual cat would have added a whole new dimension!
