the deep, deep forest

These artworks evident the theme "The deep, deep forest". This theme is described as mythical, mysterious, adventurous, dark and spooky, which gives the audience great thought on to what these artworks really mean and how their motto is relevant to our modern world today.                                                                     The mythic meaning of the forest:                                     The forest is where fairy tales happen. It's here where we meet frog princes, wise old men, fairies, a golden goose, a ravenous wolf, giants, spirit messengers and all manner of creatures. The real meaning towards all these fairy tales and mythical stories is. When we walk into a forest, we step into a world full of adventure and fear. We leave safe paths that we are familiar with cross the edge into places full of challenge and unpredictability. This relates to our modern world today as we can't predict the future, but we can take risks. The use of repetitive and unusual lines, patterns and dull colours etc depicts the idea of the unknown in this world. "Through the darkness of paths unknown, we have the possibility of seeing the light".
