About

"Tiger Swallowtail," (2019) by wildlife artist Alexis Kandra is an oil painting with aqua and gold metal foil on wood panel, measuring 20 inches high by 20 inches wide. The painting is gilded with metal foils, with gold and copper hues as well as aqua metal foiling. A very cheerful image, with a domestic short hair cat that is black and white with pink paws, perched on its hind legs and reaching with its front legs for a fluttering tiger swallowtail butterfly -- vibrant with yellow and black wings, accented with royal blue spots. The cat's tail is up in the air and curved with glee, curiosity and excitement. The cat and butterfly and their play together is set against a rich black circle upon a gridded floor. The aqua and gold, bronze, copper metallic foil surround and soften around the black circle. In this medium size painting, Alexis captures a playful moment underscored by the graphic grid and diorama like circle -- to her, they represent the space time fabric in which all of life occurs. Somehow she manages to make neutral colors look vibrant -- the black is deep, the cat's fur glows, the light comes into the scene in a way that it brings the image to life with movement. The buttery yellow and cobalt blue of the swallowtail are saturated yet muted, as are the peachy pale rose pinks of the pads of the cat's paws. This painting brings life to any space it's in.
