JILL MIRZA ‘Red Walls with Cats’ 14 x 18 in  /  35.6 x 45.7 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2015
The crumbling walls to be found on abandoned buildings are often full of pattern  and strange shapes. This image of cats on the steps of a vivid dilapidated building in  Greece, is full of rhythm, the cats bodies tumbling down echoing the shapes found in the  old plaster. The strong background colours act as a camouflage for the cats, making the  painting more about abstract shapes than about imagery.
