Richard Kiebdaj employs his signature “synesthetic” method of vibrant and swirling color to activate all of our senses in “Owl and the Pussycat.” Kiebdaj has used this time intensive method of mixing color in many of his works to evoke sounds, smells, and textures.

“Owl and the Pussycat” is a reference to an eighteenth century poem of the same name by Edward Lear. The poem tells of the two lovesick creatures as they set out in a boat, serenading one another and planning their marriage. The sweet and whimsical poem, like Kiebdaj’s homage, is exquisitely crafted with care and effort, but maintains the loose, puerile appeal of youth and love.
