i’m jealous of sandra eterovic

Sweet jiminy… I love, love, love these paintings. I mean sculptures. Or paintings. Ok, here’s where the confusion comes in… Melbourne based artist Sandra Eterovic paints with acrylic on wood, but then cuts away the background so that’s she’s just left with a giant Tshirt or a huge can of SPAM {so good! the painting that is, not actual SPAM} She lured me in with that number-covered couple, and then finished me off with these:

… grouchy men in Chanel shirts? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!!!

{Thanks to Lucy for sending me a link to Sandra’s work!}

    I love those grumpy men wearing Chanel t-shirts. I need to get one (or both) for the daily chuckle they’ll bring!! So awesome.

    Thank you SO MUCH for featuring my work. I am a little bit in shock, actually….!!

    The Chanel man is based on an actual man I once saw emerging from the public housing complex in the inner Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. He looked hard, embittered, frightening and sad. The Chanel t-shirt he was wearing was probably one of those fake ones that were around in the 80s. I’ll never know whether he had any idea of the gravity of what he was wearing, or whether he was just glad to have something covering his back.

    Sandra Eterovic’s work is funny, compassionate, subversive and beautiful. I am an avid fan of her work and can’t wait to see her new show
