Cat Tesla is a contemporary Atlanta-based artist who meditates before heading to the studio to paint. The subjects she paints are organic, either originating from Mother Nature, or inspired by her. Cat's work is an abstraction of nature. The "Chrysalis" Series is about transformation. Similar to the butterfly’s sheltered stage of being or growth, this series mirrors nature’s vibrations of unfolding. Visual poetry. Described as a “modern Monet”, Tesla’s “Chrysalis” Series evokes bold execution and luminous grace. Various mediums are utilized to build the surface of her paintings.
