EARLY LEARNING (fairy-tales and urban myths)

This body of work explores the notion of fairytales in a contemporary and playful way. Using personal childhood photographs and patterns from early readers I have reconstructed stories and myths from my childhood. These works are intentionally illustrative, but do not follow a linear narrative, instead we see real world imagery merging with storybook fantasy to form a slightly surreal series of works.

I would like to credit the use and incorporation of cover designs from a series of children's books published by Dent Dutton in the 1950's.
