Collection: REFLECTIONS OF PADDY & JIM

SOLO EXHIBITION BY KAREN KNIGHT-MUDIE

“Reflections of Paddy & Jim”

17 July - 15 August 2021
Last week to view and purchase these amazing artworks.
Karen has decided she would like to give you all a chance to own one of her collectable pieces and you will see she has made all of her art a bit more affordable for you to collect.  

Every image tells a tale, or evokes a memory. Maybe, personal association is the trigger that brings another snippet of fact or fancy to this true story.
In 1902, on Easter Sunday, the dastardly deed of murder and incineration of two bodies was discovered. The victims were Constable George Doyle aged 33, and property manager, Albert Dahlke merely 27 years old. The alleged culprits, brothers Paddy Kenniff & Jim Kenniff, were 39, and 32 years old. In 1902, both faced the biggest court hearing in Queensland’s history. Powerful, & easily recognised symbols are saddle bags, pack saddles, spurs, hats & guns. These I use
as the floating veils of association that viewers might pick up to link them more strongly into this true story. By distorting the 'symbols', I'm upsetting normal recognition and raising questions. By cutting and opening the flap of the bags, I want to let the bags ‘talk and unlock’ their contents. The bodies were bashed, broken and burnt. Bones, ash and bits were stuffed into the saddlebags ... later found and offered as evidence at the long and drawn-out trial in Brisbane.

Opening days Thursday - Sundays

10am - 2pm
