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


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


1940s war propaganda that he juxtaposes alongside apocalyptic destruction.


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.


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

What will remain of us once everything is destroyed.


Extinction (study)

Holywar (study)
