99 Lives (Cats)


What at first appears to be a drawing of a lot of dots, like a piece of pure geometric abstraction, on closer inspection reals itself to be 99 tiny cat faces. Underneath the faces are the words ’99 lives’ cut into the paper itself. So for the first time viewer the piece transforms from a seemingly cold, minimal work into a humorous piece brimming with personality, before their very eyes. Please note that the photographs of this piece don’t really do it justice as the cats are drawn so tiny it was difficult to get a clear image of them.
