Appropriating lost pet posters from my immediate environment, I intervene in the recovery of missing pets, and rework my neighborsâ€™ expressions of loss and desire in an observance that is by turns elegiac and emotionally parasitic. Public expressions of private attachment, the posters are visual pleas to a local community. Reproducing the reproduction, I remake the disposable xerox prints by hand with graphite on canvas. With an understanding of the probable loss of the cats to a local coyote population, these images take on a tragic dimension. Series of 8 images. Each image is 24Ã—30â€³, graphite on canvas.
