Cat In Blue On Yellow
Painting - Acrylic And Charcoal On Canvas
Cat In Blue On Yellow, by Ben Gertsberg - acrylic palette knife and charcoal painting on canvas, size 16"x20" - from Figurative Abstract Art series.
This minimalist figurative painting is inspired by the beauty and elegance of adorable creatures that steal our hearts instantly. Feline bodies are so perfectly flexible, they look so interesting from any angle! When cats lie down it seems they can relax and sleep in any position, anywhere.
The surreal cat is in repose, golden yellow background makes you wonder if the animal is floating in sunlight-filled air. Or is the kitty basking in the sun, or warped on the floor painted ochre yellow? Enjoy making your own decision on where this peacefully resting yet contorted cat is taking her nap. Although you can not see the face, curves and lines of the back, limbs and ears create tension and mystery.
This semi-abstract figurative artwork is influenced by Pablo Picasso's surrealistic and biomorphic exploration of the boundary between abstraction and figuration.
