Pen and gouache on paper
6" x 12"
This collaborative drawing between Kat Johnson and Kenny Cole began with Kat Johnson's green line drawing of a reclining female figure among architectural minaret profiles. Cole then rendered it as a subterranean scene, camouflaging the figure as a pattern of red stripes frozen into a mini city clustered on the floor of a schematically colored cave. In the distance we see a figure standing at the cave's outlet. Is that our overlord? If so, he then might be guarding a claim to a natural treasure in the form of this strange glassy stalagmite formation.
