Artist's Description

Collage on card
140mm x 200mm

In 1943, Australian artist Albert Tucker painted “Victory Girls” as part of his Images Of Modern Evil series. The girls in Tucker’s painting are gleefully surrendering their bodies to the advances of the sinister and grotesque Australian soldiers who were stationed in Melbourne at the time.

Victory Girls can be seen here

However, in my For Whom The Belle Tolls series, it is not their bodies that these girls are sacrificing to the occupying forces, instead it is their minds. The war has moved on from the battlefield, and is now played out in the domain of the media. They are now being ravished by information from broadcasts, newsfeeds, gossip magazines and billboards.

And as in Tucker’s Victory Girls, they enjoy these perverse advances.

Other works in the Series:

For Whom The Belle Tolls #1
For Whom The Belle Tolls #5

This work was exhibited in the 2005 Postcard exhibition at the Linden Gallery in St. Kilda, Melbourne, and was also included in issue 3 of No Tears magazine.
