return to Sandy Skoglundís Radioactive Cats, 1980. The drawing of a center
line would reveal an elderly man on the left side and his wife on the right.
There is an equal weighting and distribution of objects, hence, it is
balanced. What provides unity? Gray is consistently applied to the floor,
walls, furniture, and clothing. The cats are consistently green. Repeating
shapes are evident in the cats, and vertical lines in the chair, radiator,
refrigerator, and the painted windowís frame. There is a unity in the content
- all objects are appropriate to a kitchen.
