Here is a look at what I am currently working on.
My idea with these paintings was to create portraits inspired by wellknown fairytale characters, i.e. Snowwhite, Litte Red Riding Hood and Peter Pan.
I wanted to give a human face to very archetypal characters and to interpret their stories in a different way - to bring the animal out in the princess and to introduce death and sexuality into stories where eternal youth and innocence have been dominant principles.
The series has been inspired a great deal by some of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman and Angela Carter, and their alternative renderings of fairytales.
The paintings I have posted are mostly works in progress and there is more work to come - I expect to make a total of at least twelve portraits in this series.
