Talking to Kelsey Brookes

Question: Tell me about “Two Cats One Canvas”

This painting was made for my first solo show, in Switzerland a few years
ago.  I was doing a lot of what I was calling “semi-sacred” images at that
point inspired by Hindu religious art.  I found images of animals that I
liked then images of human figures that I liked and cut and pasted using
Photoshop and painted the result.  Forced mutation maybe.  “Two Cats one
Canvas” ended up being one of my favorite pieces.  I think its
interesting, arresting and funny at the same time.  The tongue in cheek
title happened last minute but really finished the piece of nicely.
