This painting is part of Petr Ldin's newest series of cat portraits. "A cute silver and gray cat relaxing and hiding in the gray background," says Petr. His subject is rendered colorfully, bringing to mind Andy Warhol's animal portraits. This painting has two different textures - one for the fur and the other for the geometric background.
Through color, texture and movement, Petr Ldin renders human expression on canvas. The women he depicts, whether dancing, reclining or posing, all project the same passive expressions, with tight lips and smooth eyes. There is a sense that these women are acquainted with reality, both the good and bad. They move through the compositions with the same attitude they move through life, accepting certain harsh realities. However, there is a celebration in portraying the serious side of living. It is part of the beauty of being human and experiencing emotion. Petr captures this duality with his use of vibrant colors and varying brushwork, projecting a sense of passion within his figures.
