Ready to Hang
Part of my black cat trilogy, which celebrates these beautiful misunderstood felines as symbols for good luck. The fact is black cats tend to be less inbred, have less health issues, and be more affectionate than other cats. I believe we need to change negative urban myths and folklore surrounding these wonderful animals into positive ones.
The other pieces of the trilogy "Good Luck Kitty Red" and "Good Luck Kitty Blue" have already sold. This is the last left and my personal favorite.
The art piece itself is 14" X 11" but comes framed with white matting and a black frame, which makes it 18" X 14" in total size.
Born in the USA, but I grew up in Chile. That land of wine, poetry, and magic inspired in me early on to create my own visual language. I call it “visual poetry”: people, landscapes and objects selected and stylized to capture an emotion. Back in the USA, in Nebraska, the solitude of endless skies and prairie drew me within to my own realms of imagination. Even though I have a Minor in Art as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, much of my work is self-explored. I got my MA in London, where I was inspired by the great masterpieces, in particular, that of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic artists from whom I've "borrowed" some of my techniques. Here in Los Angeles, California, where I currently reside, I continue my search to give visual expression to the inner experience of our outer world. I'm inspired by the beautiful diversity of people, the variety of environments and the vibrancy of the art scene that currently surrounds me .
