Colossal Cats Series
Angela Lizon Colossal Cats were initially painted as an escape route from her abstract work, which she decided had offered up all its possibilities Since becoming interested in the conversion process that happens when turning a photo of a kitten, cynically produced to appeal to children, into a large-scale fine art painting - making a kitsch image desirable.
"Having two daughters and being surrounded by all things pink, fluffy and kitsch for eleven years - it seems only natural that this has fed into my work. The large scale of the paintings owes more to George Stubbs' study of a horse (Whistejacket) in the National Gallery, London, and to Jeff Koons or other post-modernists painters."
