An Idiot's Tale

“An Idiot’s Tale: The Lost Writings of Rapunzel” 

 Sometimes, when you’re working on an etching, you have a lot of time to muse about the image as you’re gauging it into a metal. I was working on a series called “Two Fairies’ Tales”, one of which was an image of Rapunzel with her hair entwined around her and her lover’s arms, and it made me wonder about the kind of woman that would haul a man up by her hair. 

 A story began to unfold. I decided to keep a journal as Rapunzel and see what happened. As I did it, it felt like a very distinct character emerged with a tale all her own. She does have magical properties and all the attendant difficulties of having been born half-angel in the age of fairytales and witch hunts. 

 I love the idea of storybooks for grown-ups. Why did we ever leave such a comforting, engaging and sweet format behind, in childhood?
