Melbourne’s foremost men’s jewellery emporium, Lord Coconut, continues its love affair with emerging young artisan jewellers, with an exclusive solo exhibition of painted vintage book covers titled “How to mend a broken heart” by Beth Croce as part of the 2013 Midsumma Festival.
 
The works presented in this exhibition, hand painted on vintage encyclopaedias, are a different take on how to mend a broken heart. Hunky boys and dashing dolls demonstrate this hands-on approach to heart surgery. Heartache never looked so good.
 
Croce explains that, “I’ve made paintings of little people in my cardiac illustrations on the covers of a series of vintage encyclopaedias. The 1950’s calendar style figures are hands-on at work in today’s cutting edge surgical procedures. It’s old and new, vintage with modern, art meets science – some of my favourite juxtapositions rolled into one fab little show”.
 
Beth Croce is a Johns Hopkins (USA) trained, certified medical artist whose 18 years as a biomedical illustrator has inspired the Bioperspective line of jewellery, prints and paintings. Her art is informed by her award-winning professional illustration work and takes anatomically accurate jewellery, prints and paintings to a new level.
