Cat's meow

Updated: Mar 7, 2019

Living on a busy street in Auckland wasn’t ideal for keeping a cat, so painter Adrian Jackman got his daughter a robotic cat.

Adrian Jackman, 'Imaginary Landscape No.16', 2016, acrylic on canvas, 1524x1220mm

It became the subject of Imaginary Landscape No.16, the first painting to come out of Jackman’s Wairarapa studio after the family moved to Carterton in 2016. The robot cat had come with a manual and Jackman says the line drawings in it were ideal for him to digitize and turn into art. This painting, along with a number of his colourful geometric works, are on display at Aratoi. Nine new works will be exhibited at NKB Gallery, Auckland, in May.
