Gabrielle Mordy: Curious Maiden

"I am a passionate advocate for exploring intuitive paths and discovering what comes." - Gabrielle Mordy

"How did a story that was recorded centuries ago by two German brothers inspire Australian artist Gabrielle Mordy to immerse paper within pots of boiling eucalyptus leaves? The Handless Maiden is a relatively obscure fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm which tells the story of a young girl who, when betrayed and maimed by her family, takes off into the forest to find her own pathway in the world. This traditional German fairy tale has been a central inspiration behind theCurious Maidens exhibition, which features artwork created entirely from plant dyed watercolour paper." Taken from Mordy's Artist Statement.
