DescriptionExperience the art of CATMASUTRA as Paul sets out to create an in-between world, filled with magic that suddenly grabs us, makes us laugh and remember things that dont necessarily fit neatly anywhere. In each of his paintings, the cat is the artists gateway to a new space that affords us a momentary freedom to dream and make time stand still...And there's always a moment in time when we know we are right in the middle, between heaven and earth, light and dark, happiness and sadness - perfect equilibrium. It could be anywhere, while vacationing or being at home, watching a waterfall or simply watching the sky, the moment when you forget yourself, when you're completely calm and peaceful, there it is, even if you did not recognize it. In William Blake's words, ' To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.'
Paul Koh, Singapore Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement Over the years, Paul Koh has created a unique body of captivating and vibrant cat-inspired art that has been extremely well-received and sought after. Quirky, amusing and karmic, Paul's paintings unveil an “in-between” world where innocence and mischief go hand in hand. In each of his paintings, the cats (based on his real-life pets, Halo and Angel) is the artist’s gateway to a new space, a wonderland where emotions are innocent enough to run free, and dreams more than just make-believe. The trademark 'eyes-wide-shut' and 'ear-to-ear grin' of the Catmasutra cats embody this deep-seated childhood innocence cum devil-may-care bravado. This is the essence of Paul's Catmasutra paintings... Check out his website at www.catmasutra.com
