Australian based screen-print artist Rhys Cooper. With a brand new body of work, Rhys embarks on a portrait series of influential women from the world of popular culture. His ‘femme fatales’ come from all over, from childhood stories to comic books, these women are iconic in one prolific way or another. Themes of female power and womanly authority play a large role in this new body of work and imagery of a violent nature, such as barbed thorns and ferocious winds all attribute to the fierce quality of these ladies and create a tense and seductive platform for Rhys’s figures.
Packed with immense detail and vibrant punchy colors, this series of screen prints are mostly all confined to Rhys’s signature narrow format. This preparation transforms these portraits into war-like banners, especially considering their aggressive aesthetic. With their bold illustrative nature and dark motifs, Rhys transforms the ideological social constructs of femininity and creates a spectacular twist on female heroines, leaving the viewer both a bit terrified and intrigued.
Femme Fatale seeks to explore the communal social consciousness by presenting figures are both instantly recognizable yet also utterly brand new and unique. His twists on the iconic female leads of childhood takes a mature twist; delving into Rhys’s work is like entering a shadowy surreal world, akin to a fantastical nightmare with a strong female lead.

Stunning Pencil Illustrations by Cath Riley
These stunning pencil illustrations by Cath Riley are truly exquisite. She has an amazing grasp of the subtilties of the human form, especially the texture and elasticity of human skin and the proportions of complex features like faces and hands.

Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.
The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.
As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
