This is Oscar, the Bionic Cat of England. He was sleeping in the field one day when a combine came by and severed off his two back legs. He was rushed to the vet, and then to a surgeon who replaced his missing legs with prosthetic legs. A year ago, I was in a group show at Rock/Dement Visual Art Space for work inspired by the artist Morris Graves. When I saw poor Oscar looking up at me from the newspaper I knew he would be my subject matter in the vein of Graves 'wounded bird' paintings. Two weeks ago, I was contacted by one of the owners, Kate, who wanted to purchase my Oscar painting for her husband as a Christmas present. Today, Oscar is on the airplane to the Channel Islands where he will happily reside with the real Oscar who is doing 'just fine' thank you.
