Cat Siren is a 26 year old , self-taught artist from Victoria B.C. Through the embrace of experimentation she is flexible with a number of different mediums and surfaces. Having recently undergone a 7 month tattoo apprenticeship, her illustrative work is most refined and holds weight in her current portfolio. Her favorite mediums include graphite pencil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil crayon and pen/ink. Cat's style can best be described as playful, whimsical and versatile.
The theme of her work over the last several years predominantly focuses upon the concept of metamorphosis and self growth. Intrigued by the biological process by which an animal, or in this case humans not only physically change, but emotionally and intellectually. Often involving or following a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in our structure through cell growth and differentiation, like the morphing from chrysalis to butterfly.
She hopes to burst the societal bubble and bring awareness to that turning point and transformation. Mixed with the duality that is the subconscious or sub personality. The focus is on fusion of organic motion, with concrete reality. Creating a merging of styles both abstract and surreal, bringing you into a parallel dimension of transformation. Using bold vibrant colours and imagery to capture not only the eye but the heart, Cat is hoping to bring people into the divine cosmic realm within to inspire change and growth. Her grey scale work is a representation of that duality, a window into shadows of the human psyche, the depth and darkness. It is the beginning of a dream series, jumping deep within the subconscious mind, turning away from familiarity for something more fluid, authentic, outer worldly and transcendent.
