Artist's Description

There is really only a very vague similarity to the characters in the classic Hans Christian Andersen story. I adapted the characters and melded them into a vision I had of beauty and betrayal and birds; though mine look more like seagulls than ravens, and the beautiful girl is linked with, and becoming birds herself. In this state she can self-inflict pain and actually draw blood. It’s all very convoluted and doesn’t quite make sense. What pleased me greatly was the fact that the painting was bought by a listed Australian Artist for his personal collection. The medium used was damped out tissue paper, acrylics, ink, and Liquitex. There is more symbolism in the painting which is difficult to interpret, and some of it I don’t like thinking about, as it opens doors long closed. I was fairly pleased with some of the line work, and I think I achieved the coldness I was seeking. Thanks for looking,
