Binnie
Paul Binnie, Scottish, b. 1967
White Cat

red to grey baren sujizuri ground, with artist's circular seal Binnie at lower right corner, numbered, titled and signed in pencil on the bottom margin, 9/30, White Cat, Paul Binnie, ca. May - June 2004
dai oban tate-e 17 by 11 1/2 in., 43.3 by 29.1 cm
For each design in the Edo Ink (Edo zumi) series Binnie produced non-tattoo versions in smaller editions of only thirty impressions. This figure was also used for Kuniyoshi no neko (Kuniyoshi’s Cats). The alternate palettes emphasize the nudes themselves, juxtaposing the exposed skin against rich red or pink grounds, and eliminating the ukiyo-e references found in the cartouches, signatures and pictogram seals.
