'RED RIDING HOOD'S CLOAK', 2012 printed cotton

'RED RIDING HOOD'S CLOAK', 2012 printed cotton

Made from handmade fabric featuring a design of 'Brown Bunny' and 'Doll and Pink Boris' colour Biro drawings. Inspired by Angela Carter’s story ‘The Company of Wolves’,1979 and the film of the same name, this artwork focuses on the interpretation of the fairy tale ‘Red Riding Hood’, renown as a parable about sexual maturity. The pattern design weaves together symbolism of female childhood and the transgression from adolescence to adult hood through the stereotypical images of a doll, a pink animal and baby rabbit. The heavily made up doll and the bleeding rabbit, a symbol of reproduction, represent the transgression from adolescence to adulthood. The cloak drifts innocently from a white hanger while the hood suggests a sense of being overpowered.
