Feline fronds when cats and plants collide.

Since 2008, Chicago-based artist Stephen Eichhorn has been making surprising cat collages, drawing inspiration from his overflowing collection of houseplant guides and books about cats. “There was a quirkiness and humour to the still life compositions of the house plants that the cat photos shared,” he says. “It made sense to combine them.”
Focusing his collages on flowers one week and succulents the next, over the past decade he has hand-crafted several hundred pieces, now collected in his debut book, Cats & Plants.

“There’s usually something about the expression or pose of the cat that dictates the direction of the collage,” says Eichhorn. “The collage-making itself is very spontaneous.”
