Painted Kirsten McKenzie
If art can capture a soul, what happens when one of those souls escapes? When art appraiser Anita Cassatt is sent to catalogue the extensive collection of reclusive artist Leo Kubin, it isn’t only the chilly atmosphere of the secluded house making her shiver, it's the silent audience of portraits clustered on every wall watching her. Kubin’s lawyer didn’t share the detailed instructions regarding the handling of the art and Anita and her team start work in ignorance of the very instructions designed to keep them safe. Safe from the art. In the dark, portraits stir as the subjects ease themselves out of their frames, free at last from the confines of paint and canvas which they have no intention of ever returning to. There’s a painting to finish and the people in the house are in the way.
