Wendy L Starn 2009
Inspiration: Puss in the Corner
In August of 2008, my son found a tiny kitten under the hood of the car, covered in grease and fleas. He cleaned her up and she won his heart, as well as the scorn of our other two cats. Boris the black cat is determined to be Alpha male, and is also proud of his prowess at catching (catnip) mice, while Moose the orange cat is the mighty hunter of lizards and bugs who’s afraid of everything. Oslo the kitten sleeps, dreaming, no doubt, of how best to annoy her big brothers.
Background fabrics are hand-stamped by the artist. Cats are threadpainted over fabric collage, and are based on photographs taken by the artist.
