Catty by Amy Crook

Catty by Amy Crook

This piece was once described as looking like she was wearing a black rubber catsuit, though as the bronze has aged the patina’s gotten some flecks of blue-green verdigris on it that adds an unusual texture. She’s another of my little bronze people series, so the figure is about the size of a child’s doll. I always liked the way the lines of her body combined the lush, heart-shaped derriere with long, slender limbs and a smooth, featureless face to be both sensual and faintly creepy.

The person who bought it was kind enough to send me a better photo than the ones I had, since I wanted to post the whole series and not just the ones I had left.

Catty, approx. 12″ long cast bronze, sold.

    It’s funny, when I first looked at this, the impression I had was that she was in motion, prostrating to the divine. I get the sexual context to, but the idea of prostration remains.

      One of my favorite things about art is that even the things we feel are most obvious are open to interpretation. That’s awesome that you see your own thing!
