Catherine Cachia’s Bell Box mural “Flora & Fauna” in Sunnylea Park depicts rabbits, deer, foxes, squirrels, blue jays and wolves painted using pastel pinks, blues, browns, greens and purples. These background colours wrap around the entire box, while outlines of leaves and flowers make up the spaces not displaying the animals. The back face of the Bell Box focuses on the outlined face of a fox, with similar-looking leaves and flower outlines spread around the fox.
Artist’s Statement: “This is my most recent community/public mural. I was happy to participate in the @bellboxmurals program in Etobicoke. My theme was local flora and fauna. It was a joy to create. I finished at a tough lighting time of day with this speckled light through the trees but since I don’t know when I’ll be back in Etobicoke these are the best pics I have for now. Pastels for life.”
