Dazzling imagery with dark undertones, the Khoa Le Illustrations series explores the dangerous side of innocence and curiosity.
Just like a collection of cautionary tales, the illustrations contain a narrative of sublime beauty that bewitches the viewer, but also frightens us with macabre visuals that send chills down your spine. Mostly featuring young maidens, reminiscent of Little Red Riding Hood who went too far into the dark woods, finding themselves in some form of predicament. One girl is collecting fish in bags but ends up with a plastic bag over her head, another is stuck inside a bird cage and one is lying dead with her head submerged in a pond.
The Khoa Le Illustrations series is full of ominous enchantment.
