The Catskills

The Catskills


In 2008, I was asked to participate in the creation of an independent film called Art House, set in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The film is based on a group of art college students living in a communal house, and their fight to keep the free living quarters. The cast of characters were unique and quirky in their own right, and I was asked to create the artwork for the character Becky.

The artwork for Becky was to be kitsch and playful, and the only other information that I was given is that she was obsessed with cats! So I created three “completed” works and one “in-progress” work to be used on set. All the sculptures are made out of papier-mâché and kitty-litter, and all carry playful titles.
