Jodee Knowles + Newspaper Plinths

Knowles’ work is heavily based on the human condition and the emotional state of mind that makes or breaks a happy existence.

In 2008 owner Chrissie Catling contracted Jodee to paint on S2’s inner west wall, with the artist’s knowledge that her work would be a temporary installation not a permanent work. Her painted knitting lady sat well alongside countless bundles of outdated newspaper brought in to create plinths showcasing S2’s accessories.
