ABOUT THE ART

If I was going to illustrate "The Little Mermaid," this would be the gist of it. The colour scheme and time of day were chosen to present a darker look at the fairytale. The colours are reminiscent of autumn because this season is often used to symbolize the later ages of one's life. Similarly, sunset (being at the end of the day) symbolizes the end of life. Sunset is also a liminal time; it is neither night nor day and is thought of as a gateway for magic. I chose to use these symbols in this piece because mermaids are liminal; neither fish nor woman. "The Little Mermaid" is a story about a girl who, in her naivety, trades a painless life of innocence to live in the mortal world. I wanted to represent her as though she is about to die.
