Victor’s original name for this painting was The Twilight Cats of Haruki Murakami. Murakami is a great Japanese surrealist author. In Kafka on the Shore, one of the characters, Satoru Nakata, has a job searching for lost cats because he has the rare ability to converse with them.
Cats frequently figure in Murakami’s fiction as delegates from another world. Victor portrays them here as guides or conduits bridging the world of day-to-day reality and the unconscious world of dreams.
All men in the painting are wearing tall, pointed hats. There are many sleeping faces visible in the stones of the wall
This painting suggests a coexistence among: the dream and reality state, artist and viewer and conscious and subconscious.
