Pisica Pătrată’s wooden sculpture portrays a sphinx-like cat with a coat of grey silver fur, striking red eyes, and a short tail. The sculpture captures the essence of a startled feline, whose appearance resonates with the features of an apartment block, lending an urban and enigmatic quality to the artwork. The cat’s haunting gaze and sphinx-like qualities blend with the resemblance to the structure of an apartment block, creating an evocative and mesmerising piece that melds elements of the domestic and the mysterious. The artwork is part of a series of hand painted wooden sculptures.
