After the critical acclaim my daughter and I enjoyed last week with our debut collaboration, ‘Helicopter‘, we’re back this week with another of our artistic offerings.

This week, Little Proclaims was keen to show another side of her, quite formidable, talents and has offered a more aggressive, almost brutal, palette to complement the elementary template she commissioned me to produce.

I think this piece, which we’ve called ‘Cat’ is as stark a reflection of our times as you’re likely to come across.

    1. I hated art lessons too, but I always loved cartoons so I suppose I was always more motivated to draw them. I wouldn’t want to oversell my talents but I think my cartoons have a certain ‘charm’ if nothing else…

    1. It’s funny you should mention that particular track because, although we didn’t listen to it all in the creation of this piece, I can’t help but feel it was an influence…

  1. There’s a hint of Dali in the symbolism of the red angry eyes of the central feline motif. The bright bold colours have a Warholish quality, but then the colours fade to the right in what this viewer takes as the artists attempts to escape the arbitrary boundaries of the borders. A masterful subversion of Societies norms and restraints! There’s a certain disdain for tradition as evinced by the insouciant brushwork and minimalistic use of the colour palette. Plus, does one detect the light whimsical touch of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes?
    Bravo! An artiste- artistes- are born!
    Or alternatively, nice.

  2. Obbverse summed up the work brilliantly. However, I must add that it can be clearly seen that the young artist has matured somewhat since her early work. Her brush strokes (let’s pretend a bit here!) are more bold, with far less hesitancy, almost as if she can hardly wait a moment longer to tell her story and pass on the joy of her vision to her audience.

  3. Little Proclaims… next winner of the Turner Prize, perhaps?! It’s certainly far superior to the work I saw in the Turner Contemporary last year (or was it the year before?).
