Day 18: Fred Einaudi

Fred Einaudi has a few recurring themes to his work that I find quite compelling.

Innocence that he juxtaposes alongside death.

The Mermaid

homunculus

Don’t all children like to play with dead things?

Buttonmaker

1940s war propaganda that he juxtaposes alongside apocalyptic destruction.

Patriot

Paddy Paws

Sex but in an uncomfortable way.

Tulips (Tulips, Two Lips, get it?)

Leda and the Swan (this is an interesting take on that myth)

Children who seek security amongst the destruction and become prey.

Rousseau

Starry Night (I even get sexual vibes from this as well)

What will remain of us once everything is destroyed.

Necropolis

Extinction (study)

Holywar (study)
