“What are the consequences of photorealism?” asks Ben Steele. “What can happen when a painting looks too real?” Not every work from the self-described Art Chameleon features a guest appearance from Van Gogh or Warhol; sometimes he turns his sly sense of humor on an entire genre.

It’s something that we’ve all experienced at one point or another. Is that a painting or is it photograph? Is it live or is it Memorex? Today, you can add, “That has to be digital.” The story goes that artist James Bama once had a collector x-ray a painting because he was certain it was a touched up photograph. If the magic an artist can create with brush and paint can confound even the most ardent art lover, what could be the effect be on your average feline?

In "Curiosity", Steele’s cat does not stalk its prey but sits mesmerized by the possibility of the easy meal before it. To pounce or not to pounce seems to be the question. The painting brings to mind Francis Barraud’s "His Master’s Voice," known world-wide as the RCA logo.

"Curiosity" is available as both a Giclée Canvas (21""w x 26h) and Giclée Paper (16"w x 20"h). Bring your cat home with you today.
