Newton's Grimm's

I started the Grimm's project in 2006, the object is to paint one painting for each of the 211 stories. I chose Grimm's because these stories have survived the test of time and their relevance connects us to those long gone. Disguised as harmless children's amusements these stories warn the new generation of a harsh and unforgiving world.

My approach was to try to find a contemporary relevance and then interpret that into paint. These are not illustrations of the stories but more of a symbolic dissection of their underlying meaning.

  • Donkey Cabbage
  • Dr. Knowall
  • The Maiden Without Hands
  • The Story of Schlauraffenland

Every month I will feature a different painting and include a link to the story.
This is an ongoing project so come back often to see new works!
