In my revisionist series_Red Riding Hood Speaks_, the real, the interpreted and the imagined find their way as mixed metaphors recreating content. Present are male – female interactions considered with a playful twist of feminine empowerment envisioning life after Red Riding Hood and the Wolf have set up household together and are dealing with 21st century tensions and relational politics. I approach these prints in a manner that is conscious of the materials and the applications. They are hand pulled non-traditional photo intaglios, with chine collé of found, painted or invented applications of paper produced digitally. Within this process, I re-contextualize my pleasures of childhood play – paper dolls, books and puzzles. Ephemera of magazine imagery and story books are processed through the imagination and manipulated, embedding the prints with visual innuendos while reflecting on my surroundings and social mores of the western USA.
