In ‘The Ship’s Cat’, Louise Tomlinson imagines a dusky seascape. Dating to ancient times, cats have travelled with sailors, serving to keep rodents at bay - thus the ship’s cat. In 1977, Richard Adams and Alan Aldridge published a children’s book of the same name and in 2002, Bryce Courtenay told the story of the cat that circumnavigated Australia. 

Tomlinson’s etching evokes this rich history. In it, a lone figure - perhaps a marooned sailor - stands in shallow water. Where is ‘The Ship’s Cat’ now? For collectors of contemporary landscape art and those interested in Australian history, Tomlinson is a quietly thrilling find.
