All Play, No Work - Catmasutra 1

"All Play, No Work" was painted for the first Catmasutra 1 exhibition held at 37 The bar in November 2004. Part of the "Nostalgic" series, it's about painting forgotten memories; collective memories that linger but remain hidden simply because our landscape is changing much faster than we can remember. "Memory is like fiction; or else it's fiction like memory." A paragraph from one of Haruki Murakami's short stories (The last lawn of the afternoon from the book, "the Elephant Vanishes"). "No matter how hard you try to put everything neatly into shape, the context wanders this way and that, until finally the context isn't there anymore. You're left with this pile of kittens lolling all over one another. Warm with life, hopelessly unstable".
