Bedtime Stories

Rhodes>Fine Art>Latest News

Bedtime Stories is a series of twelve artist’s books that use classic fairytales as the inspiration for a visual discussion of the elements of the stories that fascinated the artist most. The work investigates the relevance of the fairytale genre to a contemporary audience. Focusing primarily on sexuality and gendered power relations, the work identifies how these themes are presented in fairytales, using this as the basis for the content of the work. However, these are not mere illustrations – the series focuses more on thematic elements that are still prevalent in contemporary culture.
