meet the artist – fairy tales

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news/blog

I love fairy tales and fables.  I am inspired by them.  I once read somewhere that fairy tales and horror prepares one to deal with potential death.

I guess working with fairy tale themes and subverting it makes me able to cope with reality.  It was very heartbreaking when Greta Thunburg said in one of her speeches that ” This is not the time for fairy tales.”

I also stitch a lot of hybrid figures.

In the book: “The uses of enchantment” Bruno Bettleheim stated that in fairy tales and dreams any physical malformation often stand for psychological misdevelopment.  It is said that in these tales when the upper part of the body is animal and the lower part human, this indicates symbolically that things are wrong in the head/mind.

Which indicates something monstrous.  I am fascinated by monsters!

What is your favorite fairy-tale?
