EXPLORING THE ENERGY OF THE WORLD
Some people may wonder about the choice of fairies as a
subject, when there are so many more accessible ones at
hand. One answer in that painting fairies gives us a chance
to explore our creative side and stretch our imagination
in a way that mundane, everyday subjects do not. Another
is the simple wish to escape from dull reality and make
a connection to a spiritual world. It is no coincidence
that the great fairy art movement began in Victorian England
during the years of the industrial revolution, when life
was tough for many, and the countryside was changing beyond
recognition. As factories went up, belching smoke and dirt,
and large tracts of land disappeared under bricks and mortar,
the Victorians fell in love with fairies - not only in art
but also in books and plays....................................
