Tytonidae is the Latin classification for Barn Owl. I created this piece recently to show a less than traditional representation of the mythology and symbolism behind Barn Owls. Often through mythologies the Barn Owl is villainized, and the figure wears this mask directly staring at its audience, asking the question, am I a villain, or simply a mystery?
Hey, I'm Kat Thompson, or Katastrophi. I've been working with different mediums of art for the majority of my life (my dad drilled the color wheel to the tertiary colors into my brain when I was three). I mostly work with paint (Primarily Acrylic with bits of oil and watercolor here and there), but also enjoy tapping into charcoal and ink from time to time. I've mostly freelanced throughout my adult career, and while I continue to do that as much as possible, I also work in Advertising. I have a degree in Arts Management and Studio Art from Randolph-Macon College, located in Ashland, Virginia. I pull a lot of cultural and natural influences for my work, and mainly enjoy focusing on figure studies. Thanks for checking me out!
