July 16th, 2010 - Cat Show
These three acrylic paintings, whose dimensions are 68" x 68", were part of a collaborative effort. Sven and I have worked together before; he has always been my go to person when I needed my work photographed. In April of 2010, we decided to work together on this show. About a week later, I found out that I was accepted into SCAD and told Sven it was now or never: let's make the show a reality. We decided to go for it and I began the giant cat face paintings based off of Sven's photographs.
The show was about scale. In order to see the detail in the paintings you have to stand up close to them which puts you in the position of a mouse about to be eaten. The carpet paw prints moving away from the cat faces (created by Sven) are also a reminder of how large the individual cats are.
The show hung for one evening at a small gallery in Clintonville Friday, July 16, 2010. We had a excellent turn out. There are plans for another show in Spring of 2011.
