Fragmented Tales


It is amazing what I find out about Perth when I take time to venture down a grungy city laneway. Such was the case on Saturday when  I came across this artwork in a laneway not far from London Court in the Hay Street Mall. 

Segments of Fragmented Tales covered what would otherwise be a rather uninteresting, decaying alley way. Artist Clare McFarlane's fascinating design incorporates the elements of the lane way with the natural world of plants, birds and insects. 


The artwork is part of the City of Perth Wall Inc project where professional artists bring artwork into the city connecting urban community and space. A great find.

  4. We really are on the same wavelength Rae, I remember taking this one last year sometime, and looked again only last week to see if it had changed. I love the way you've shown it here, it's a beautiful piece of art.

  5. What a wonderful way to use the walls - even the "injured" areas! I am always so impressed with the artistic ability we wee in these murals and street art - its hard enough on a small canvas, but to do this on such a large scale is amazing! Great find!

  11. Welcome, Rae. I like the way the artist worked around, included, and created her own voids. She challenges us to consider the concepts of what is incomplete and complete; damaged and whole. It's always fun to ponder seeming contradictions. Thanks so much for participating in this week's Monday Mural.
