TO SKIN A CAT: IN CONVERSATION WITH SOPHIE VALLANCE CANTOR

Layla Leiman, ARTMAZE Magazine

Sushi cat, three-eyed cat, ghost cats, tiger cat, black cat, ginger cat, striped, spotted, yellow, pink, red and blue cats. Cat’s in ruffled collars, cats in seashells, cats as steeds, cat-lions. Cats of all kinds are the perennial visual motif in Sophie Vallance Cantor’s art. She is fascinated and attracted to the classic illusiveness of this creature, their inherent mysteriousness. Sophie likens this to the process of painting itself, saying that “with painting there is a mysterious magic that is possible to tap into, but can’t always be explained.”
