Artist's Description

Featured in ’Painter’s Universe’

I based this piece on this interpretation of little red riding hood…

“Red Riding Hood has also been seen as a parable of sexual maturity. In this interpretation, the red cloak symbolizes the blood of the menstrual cycle, braving the “dark forest” of womanhood. Or the cloak could symbolize the hymen (earlier versions of the tale generally do not state that the cloak is red). In this case, the wolf threatens the girl’s virginity. The anthropomorphic wolf symbolizes a man, who could be a lover, seducer or sexual predator. This differs from the ritual explanation in that the entry into adulthood is biologically, not socially, determined."

I have been yearning to do a little red riding hood piece for awhile but could never think of anything I felt would convey the mixed signals of this fairy tale…innocence, sexuality, womanhood…

getting lost along the path of life, fighting your way throught it…

Media Used: pastels, charcoal, on Mi-Teintes paper 12 × 16
