member of:Observers of the Interdependence of Domestic Objects and Their Influence on Everyday Life

This group has been active for a long time and has already made some remarkable assertions which render life simpler from the practical point of view. For example, I move a pot of green color five centimeters to the right, I push in the thumbtack beside the comb and if Mr. A (another adherent like me) at this moment puts his volume about bee-keeping beside a pattern for cutting out vests, I am sure to meet on the sidewalk of the avenida Madero a woman who intrigues me and whose origin and address I never could have known...

Fun With Cats

Join the Artlog Maquetteers!


  1. Lovely! The first cat dancing reminds me of Kuniyoshi's cats. Some of them are dancing too.

  2. Very funny how they move!
    Amazing!! Specially the first one!! :))

  3. What frolic!

    O festive wonderland!

  4. ahh, how clever and creative:))))))

    I love it!

  5. The call for submissions for the Artlog open exhibition of maquettes may be found at the following link. Come join the fun.

    It looks now as though there is to be a corporeal exhibition of maquettes and the paintings that they are used as the foundations for. Inclusion in this will be by invitation from me as the curator. Zoe will be one of those showing in the exhibition, which has been pencilled in for 2014. The venue is to be the Museum of Modern Art Wales in Machyllleth, where I've had two major exhibitions in the past ten years. This will be my first foray into curating!

  6. PS: I love the little animations Zoe. Brilliant! When's the movie coming out? (-;

  7. Zoe I think your maquettes influenced a certain hollywood actress upon that recently unfurled red carpet ... I'd sue her legs off ;)

    1. haha--it's not her fault,
      the maquettes are verrrrrry powerful....
      and they made her verrrrrry sleepy....
      she was supposed to do a lot of leaping and sailing, too, i don't know what happened!

  8. hehehe... perhaps they ended up as directors cuttings!

  9. Wonderful Zoe! I love the cat trying to muscle in on the dancers - jealous no doubt! It's a whole new twist on the tango. Now for the music?

    I've posted a few pics of my concertina-book-in progress, in spite of saying I wasn't going to. Resolutions are made to be broken, eh?

  10. ahhhh, the music...yes, i'm working on that! :D
    we'll see

    i love the way your book is turning out! what a cool process! the textures are amazing, and the colors beautiful--i left a comment, but i'm not sure if it went through?

  11. No, I didn't see your comment at the Blaug but thanks for coming by. Looking forward to seeing more of your tango dancing cat and the dancers themselves.
