Brooklyn Museum – Felines


This instillation is the work of Pepon Osorio, a Puerto Rican artist.  The cats are huge and imposing and looked quirkily cartoonish until I took in the whole scene with the gold OG baller medallions around their necks – once you do, it all starts to make too much sense.

… These oversize domestic animals (their scale accentuated by the small table they sit on) may say something about the exaggerated role that our fears and denials play within our own imaginations.

No shit hey?
