"Since the mid-nineties, the artist has rescued felines and used them as muses for paintings, ceramics, and photography," writes Andrea Huspeni. "She even collaborated with one of them, Jupiter, by combining his organic material — fur, urine, and yes, poop — with her paints. After his passing this October, she is dedicating her current collection to him."
Her feces- and urine-enhanced cat paintings start at about $1,500. In this New York Times video, the artist talks about her beloved Jupiter and his talent for “thinking out of the litter box.”
