Since beginning his "Puppy Paintings" series in 2010, Sebastian Black has rendered countless dogs as geometric semi-abstract motifs. Not a moment too soon, for "Local Warming" the Brooklyn-based artist trained his attention on cats—here, rendered in oil-on-canvas as though seen through a thermal camera.
Despite the show's title alluding to global warming, these loosely figurative new paintings share titles with songs from the Frozen soundtrack.
Sebastian Black, In Summer, 2019. Oil on linen, 80 x 60 inches.
