“This series of cat paintings is one that I have been focusing on since I began using oil pant. I see them as self-portraits, in that I have intentionally abstracted the perspective that people have of me. Though you can see through the glass, what appears is not what is actually there. The fragility of the glass demonstrates that control is just a concept. You can live in your protected space for however long, until something will eventually shatter it.”
