The human condition II..



You may remember my post 'the human condition 1' from back in December last year. When we were in Maylands last week I was delighted to come across another work by Perth artist Jodee Knowles. I find her characters that 'tell a story of love and loss, heartbreak and death' incredibly appealing, I think we can all relate to the fragility of life situations that affect our emotional state of mind.. I know I can. After a sellout exhibition in LA a few years ago Jodee's work has gone international, deservedly so! Hope your weekend is going well, it's a holiday here in Perth today so we're heading off into the country, there may be a 'piano graveyard' to be snapped :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  6. Sort of an homage to "Lady with an Ermine" by Leonardo da Vinci from around 1489–1490.

    You've piqued my interest in your trip. Piano grave yard?!

  9. I find that a little hard to take. She looks disfigured or diseased. Maybe that's the point but I wouldn't want to walk by it every day.

  10. A great mural but I am not sure that I actually like the work, I would be quite disturbed by it if I had to look at it on a regular basis!! Take care Diane

  15. For some reason the image on this mural reminds me of the 1950s singer, Edith Piaf, whose music was sometimes quite sad. I would attach a picture of her, if I could.

  16. I can guess what the condition of the 'artist' is...

  18. Does the artist use "eyes" as one of her trademarks?
