"Your catness" 2013 - Sold
Reverse-glass painting on maple
900mm x 900mm
This was part of a group exhibition called "Lovely Creatures" at former gallery Culture in Cape Town. It was based around the idea of femininity – and with this painting I was inspired by Hisaji Hara's image "A Game of Cards" – and reinterpreted it to paradoxically oversimplify the concept of womanhood:
A conformist young woman in demure uniform, at the ideal age to marry and bear children, domesticated within society, draws a card and places it in front her. On the table, where the card lays is a cat who seems less than pleased by the result... or by the voyeur.
Cats bear many symbols throughout the ages: goddess, hunter, consort, wild, feral, thief, pagan, unpredictable and also freedom. Strangely all these qualities are seemingly disparate to the image of the young woman.
The cat poses as the inner (or repressed) qualities within this doll-like woman, yet the woman draws the card and controls the game. She's the veneer and the cat is her true identity: she hides it at will; represses it completely; or occasionally lets it out – depending on her confidence or perhaps dictated by her disposition within society. • • •

_ 10 of Today's Levitation original prints participate in the touring exhibition "Tokyo Before/After." This exhibition tours worldwide through the next 10 years. The first venue is at The Japan Foundation, Toronto, Canada. Through July 11, 2018. - Tokyo BEFORE/AFTER Photography Exhibition April 11 - July 11, 2018 The Japan Foundation, Toronto (Toronto, Canada) http://jftor.org/event/tokyo-before-after/2018-07-11/ - This touring exhibition "Tokyo Before/After" features 80 pieces of photography in two groups. The historical works shot in Tokyo in the 1930s to 1940s are displayed in contrast with contemporary pieces created after 2010. Before World War II, the city of Tokyo in the 1930s and 1940s was about to complete the urban structural framework as a contemporary metropolis. Photographers took expressive advantage of the high technical level of their medium in order to fix the images of a vibrant, urban space, where the traditional and the modern co-existed and clashed at the same time. In contrast, after 2010 Tokyo enfolds the fluid social condition of the era after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and is experiencing even greater transformation. Rapid digitalization of the photographic method influences the characteristics of photographic expression; thus, the individuality and viewpoint of each artist are more clearly visible than ever. In comparing the two groups of photography from these different eras, the figures of Tokyo in the past, present, and future are distinctively intensifying. We hope that exhibition visitors will deepen their understanding of the multi-faceted megacity of Tokyo through the photographs by Japanese artists in this touring exhibition. - Exhibition Curator Kotaro Iizawa (photography critic) Artists Before: KOGA (Light Pictures), NIPPON, Kineo Kuwabara After: Nobuyoshi Araki, Mika Ninagawa, Motoyuki Daifu, SATO Shintaro, Shinya Arimoto, Natsumi Hayashi, Kenta Cobayashi, Daido Moriyama -------------------------------------------- #tokyobeforeafter #todayslevitation #hisajiharaandnatsumihayashi #natsumihayashi #hisajihara #japanfoundation #japanculture #toronto #canada #tokyo
