Wolves On My Back

Wolves On My Back

This piece of work was created in the first time of this year with the aim to explore and re-imagine fairy tales and folklore. Within this piece I've explored the underlying themes of Little Red Riding Hood. Exploring the sexual undertones and how this is ignored within the stories we are told as children. I used different materials and cutting at the paper to reveal a golden shine to create different textures and a magical feel. I still want to incorporate this within my image to remind the viewer of the pieces origin.
