CAT - Dean Bowen

Acquired by: One Per Cent for Art, capital works

About the Artwork:

The CAT is a whimsical character evoking curiosity and fun - and he lives outside Wyndham Vale Community Learning Centre. He has affectionately been nicknamed as ‘Learny’.

 “The Cat has been an important and ongoing subject in my work for a number of years. As the Community Centre is surrounded by three schools, my aim was to make a sculpture that would engage and speak to one of the main users of the building, the children. My humorous and oversized interpretation of the cat draws inspiration from ancient Egyptian art as well as childhood and adult memories of many amusing encounters with these thought provoking creatures”. – Dean Bowen

Materials: Stylised bronze
