This November, Long and Ryle gallery will be exhibiting a new series of fairytale book-cut sculptures by Su Blackwell to coincide with the Thames and Hudson publication of the title ‘The Fairytale Princess: Seven Classic Stories from the Enchanted Forest’. This exhibition will encapsulate the fusion of art and literature that is so prominent in Blackwell’s work. Created from a medium that is both fragile and transcient, these enduring fairytales have evolved into tangible and haunting sculptures.  Su Blackwell’s heroines continue to battle with the dark ambience that springs from her enchanted paper forests.
