Peter Lupkin
Gattone, Portrait of a Chubby Tabby Cat, Framed, Original Oil Painting

2019

About

Gattone, artist Peter Lupkin's ever present studio cat, is painted here in her favorite pose beckoning the viewer to give her a belly rub. The loose brushwork bodes well for this chubby feline's fur. This original oil painting is framed in a simple black wooden frame measuring 22.5w x 18.5h inches. Peter Lupkin Portrait of Gattone oil on canvas 16h x 20w in 40.64h x 50.80w cm PLU030 The artwork I create is a visual statement of my moral philosophy. The language I use to convey this philosophy in my pieces is one of traditional symbolism, this being indoctrinated into my personality through an apprenticeship into a traditional stained glass studio at the age of 14 and continuing to the present day. I seek to create scenes and narratives that are at the same time realistic and fantastical. I often use pre-existing stories when I am developing an image. I will then take these narratives and expose a less studied side of them, or try to bring them into a contemporary context. Ultimately my goal is to use modern imagery in conjunction with traditional techniques and connect them with contemporary society, showing both the narrative’s and the method’s continued relevance.
