I am in my atelier, the blank fabrics speak without speaking, and over there, in some corner of the atelier, my cat Mora is angry.
She wants cuddles, but when I tell her this is not the time, she attacks.
I return to my blank canvas, and again she attacks me.
But this time, it is fierce.
Now there are cats inside; in the fabric, everywhere.
Bursts of colors fall.
In this series composed of five works, we see how the artist was inspired by her Persian kitten Mora.
