Fellini's Fountain

Joni Dennis


Influenced by an Italian film called La Dolce Vita by Fellini, there was a long scene with Marcello  Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg frolicking in the fountain. Female glamour and body decoration, complimented by the male gaze.

The original collage work with its’ bespoke design torn from magazines and a canvas watercolour wash for the body give the work depth and texture. The ragged edges from tearing gives the image movement and a contemporary feel.

The original collage work has been finely scanned and is available now as a Giclee print in four sizes, on beautiful cotton ragg heavy 300gsm textured paper, unframed.



The decorated female body is the continuing theme for this series, imbued with the Italian passion and love for the visual. Influenced by fashion and film with an infusion of an Italian essence.

Women have been held in esteem throughout the centuries especially in Italy - glorified and represented in iconic religious paintings, dressed by amazing Italian fashion houses and remembered in passionate films.

The use of many different materials in the original work have been used to create the different images, including diamond dust, collage and embellishments of 24 karat gold.

Award winner both here and overseas, Joni’s bespoke works are found in corporate and domestic spaces in Australia and internationally.

Giclee prints are available from the original work.
