“Created by Brooklyn artist J. Morrison, HOMOCATS fight phobias, propose equal rights, combat cultural stereotypes, and challenge social norms.” — HOMOCATS official website

Combining concepts of resistance with irresistible imagery, HOMOCATS creator J. Morrison harnesses the often escapist imagery of the digital generation and the language of social change to challenge and unite. HOMOCATS reject the line separating the creative and the political as a false construct of the patriarchy, and give themselves permission to dream anything out loud. Vibrant laser beams shoot out of the eyes of these full-color, furious felines, literally interlinking their points of view into visionary networks, and the odd beam that shoots off the page seems an invitation to the reader to join in as well. Through collage and lo-fi painterly tampering, this kitten coalition re-introduces the handmade into the readymade, standardized tumblr-instagram aesthetics. The staple-bound, inkjet-printed HOMOCATS: Modern Problems deals with many of the series’ recurring concerns such as gun control, healthcare, social networking, and homophobia, this time with remarks also on the 1% and the U.S. 2016 presidential election and many a muscular male torso cut-out. As usual, HOMOCATS conceives the further organization of the adorable and the angry, challenges assumptions based on appearance, and builds communities of support and understanding. — Artbook at MoMA PS1, with edits and additions
