'Curiouser'....? Corinne Renow-Clarke












CURIOUSER...?

Since the ‘Curious Drawers’ exhibition my work has evolved. As I worked
through ideas I become more interested in detailed aspects of the Grimm
Brothers’ fairy tales that I previously used as inspiration.

I have decided to focus on one story– that of Little Red. The three symbolic
colours of fairy tales will come to the fore – the red (of blood), white (of snow)
and black (of ravens’ wings). These colours are to be used to create a range
of items incorporating the forest flowers that Little Red stopped to pick for her
grandmother.
