This piece of original artwork comes in a custom frame and ready to hang

"Cats and women are among my favorite species in the whole world. We endure shitty reputations, dramatic sways in mood, and various bodily fluids flying out of our varying orifices. We don't get as many opportunities because people think cats and women are bitchy. We are worthy, ladies and cats, and now is our time to shine! I was on a Disney kick when I made the Burlesque Princess and Frozen in Detroit. I entered the Princess into the Dirty Show, but it was rejected. So I put in 8 prints of it in the Dirty Show Print Shop and they all sold. This baby needs a home, with the purple and the tassels...it belongs to somebody. The Frozen in Detroit piece was really fun. I saw that movie "Frozen" and I hated it. I wanted those frozen chics to lighten up and stop singing terrible songs and maybe visit Detroit. So I put all my favorite landmarks and whatnot from the city in the collage.

The Frida piece was the most fun. I bought a cabinet door from IKEA and I had this image in my head of a Frida portrait. There was a Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo in Detroit exhibit at the DIA, and it was really meaningful for me. I brought the colors of her different Mexican homes through red, orange, yellow, and blue art papers. I did a tiny portrait of Kahlo from one of the books I own about her, where she is casually smoking a cigarette in a lovely white dress. I decided I needed to toughen it up for Frida's sake, so I added my favorite lyric from the band Rage Against the Machine which is "Fuck you I won't do what you tell me". I wrote it twice around the portrait in casual cursive like Kahlo used in her paintings. The rest is all cats, as they will take over the world after humans have all killed each other. Cats reveling in our cemeteries, cats using our credit cards for beach vacations, cats in space, cats becoming huge mutant cats....it will go on forever. It is an endless source of inspiration for me." - Mary Williams


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Mary Williams has been drawing since childhood and began a series of mood-laden interiors in college. Those drawings led her to begin large scale portraiture in graduate school. Needing to break out of her habits and gain a wider audience, she began incorporating her drawings into collages. This led her to work with more social themes such as feminism, gun control and the preservation of the environment and its creatures.
