    Cinderella

    • original writers of fairy tales : Grimm Brothers or Charles Perrault, and perhaps Hans Christian Andersen.
    • In a time of political censorship, where women had few rights, fairy tales were one way that they could make their opinions known.
    • As one of the best-known fairy tales, Cinderella has over 340 variations and can be traced back as far 850-60 CE (Common Era), where a version was written down in China.So I thought about possibly creating artwork based on re-writing Cinderella. It helps to focus on a single fairy tale instead of producing art that’s based on all fairy tales, which is just too ambitious. So I plan on re-creating a story that takes place in today’s society, but with a twist of what is considered to be “happily ever after”. When I have more time I’m going to start writing the short story, and with that I plan on executing a series of photographs such as what Cindy Sherman did in her The Complete Untitled Film Stills series.

    It seems as though this is the page that gets the most hits! I’m glad that the basis of my artwork is still being talked about.
