Paul Binnie

Scottish, b. 1967

Cat Feathers Blue

signed at upper left in kanji, Bin-ni, with artist's red seal, BINNIE, signed in pencil on the bottom margin, Paul Binnie, from an edition of 100, 2018

aiban tate-e 13 1/8 by 9 3/8 in., 33.3 by 23.7 cm

This 'surprise' print release was inspired by a commissioned portrait of a lady with her cat which the artist completed earlier in 2018. While Mr. Binnie was assured that the model would never commit this naughty act of ripping the feathers from a velvet quilt, he nevertheless could not help but imagine the elegant feline displaying an altogether more mischievous nature.
