Continuing my transcription of Paula Rego’s ‘Snow White and her Stepmother’  Page 38.  I experimented with script, filling the shapes in with printed defintions of the word ‘stepmother’ and ‘snow’ and ‘white’ etc.  I did  a large board with all the negative spaces filled in, but I havn’t been able to find an image of it.

Rego’s work is subversive and feminist and deals with fears and nightmares.  This is a super article about her.
