Cat Art Gets Tough—the Mysterious, Powerful, and Divine Feline Creatures of Jill Levine
Inspired by Mexican art and archeology, ancient cylinder seals, cartoon animation, and more, Jill Levine creates sculptures that are somewhere between totem, mask, and mascot. To create the works in her current show at New York’s Hionas Gallery, she sculpted styrofoam, molded the figures using plaster-dipped gauze and modeling compound, and then painted them in oil. Distant relatives of Hello Kitty, these magical, commanding felines are nothing less than divine.
