I'M JUST HAPPY WE GOT A CAT sees Parra's stylized female subjects exploring themes of the mundane, domestic life in all its tediousness. We see them resting, in conversation, passing the time, always indoors. When there is daylight visible through windows, it’s not that they can’t reach it, but that it’s no longer of interest.
Each day repeats itself in these scenes and his subjects become further abstracted in their monotony. A far cry from the pop influences of his early work, I'M JUST HAPPY WE GOT A CAT' shows Parra carefully exploring early Cubism with six new, beautifully restrained scenes we - maybe now more than ever- can all relate to.
