demoiselle en détresse
"damsel in distress"
I think this may be a start of a series. I've always had a VERY fond relationship with faerie tales and how I can travel far away without even leaving my own room [but even that can be a bit frustrating at times]. Even though in 'real' life, I'm very much in support of women's equality/rights etc, I really want to explore the helpless woman's emotions.
I really adore symbolism and I try to stay away from literal translations/images when I am creating a piece of art. I was really excited to create this piece because going out into the woods with Sam, we had a completely different idea and came out with this, in which I'm very satisfied.
