This print was first shown at the Wolf and the Fox exhibition in December 2012.

Versions of the Big Bad Wolf living in the Dark Forest appear in numerous European folktales, most famously in Little Red Cap aka Little Red Riding Hood. I have always seen the Wolf and the Dark Forest as a dual entity, where the whole or the parts are endangered species. The girl is a symbol of change. She is either swallowed by the shadows in the forest never to return, or she is “rescued” by – of all people – a wood cutter with an axe…

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique; a set number of prints (edition) are printed by the artist from a handmade plate. The drawing is incised into a plate with a hard-pointed "needle" or diamond point. Traditionally, the plate was copper or zinc, but today, a clear acrylic sheet is commonly used. The plate is inked and the ink is transferred onto cotton paper using a printing press.

All prints are shipped flat in a ridged mailer.
