Notes

"The origin of this powerful image is derived from an etching plate begun with Malcolm Christian at Caversham Press over 15 years ago and reminiscent of the famous 'Scribble Cat' published by David Krut Studio in 2010. The Kentridge studio found the plate stored away on a shelf, with a single state proof. Interested in breathing it back to life, Kentridge suggested it be continued as a collaboration with APS. In response to seeing the trial proof of two plates printed in two different densities of etching ink, Kentridge has added two more layers to each plate; one with energetic drypoint lines and the second with his painterly wash strokes characteristic of the more experimental use of coffee lift. The resulting image embodies both the creative energy of the artist and poised tension of a cat. Another Cat is the latest in a long history of Kentridge’s use of the iconic image of the cat: wrought iron cats frame the entrance to his house and studio, cats appear in many of his iconic videos, drawings, tapestries and prints, and large bronze cat twists on its back at the Norval Museum."
