Rhys Cooper Femme Fatale

  1. 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.

A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN

You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL. 

Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.

I love crows. Bird behavior in general interests me and corvids especially have shown really high levels of intelligence.

There’s a video on youtube somewhere where a thirsty little crow is at an amusement park, and he finds some humans with a water bottle. He starts pecking at the cap and at first the people didn’t catch on, but he kept persisting, trying to get at the cap.It took a little bit for the humans to get it but they unscrewed the cap for him, and filled it with water and he drank from it.The crow was so used to seeing people drinking out of these magical liquid containers and he knew exactly where it came out of and was able to communicate what exactly he wanted.
