Cats Rule All

Ange Cox

My work is about cats. Without being too obvious, I make cat themed pieces that combine religious and political imagery with cats. My concept is to re-appropriate quintessentially mythical symbols with cats as a way of showing my adoration. Egyptians worshiped cats and there are many stories told of cat gods. They believed cats were magical creatures, capable of bringing good luck to the people who housed them. In Japan, cats are revered for giving good luck and other positive results. Of course, cats, in the popular internet meme-driven imagination have come to mean anything from simple joy to mindless entertainment. In most cases, cats, cat videos, cat memes, are meant to diffuse and entertain. They’re a visual shorthand for safety from harm and innocent enjoyment. In a time when the social and political climate is ever more chaotic, I just want to take the fever-pitched discussion and put a cat on it.
