I’m delighted to be exhibiting my Alice in Wonderland inspired painting “Eat Me Drink Me” in a group exhibition at The Shoe Factory.
UnConsumed is a cross-generational, multi-disciplinary, post-pandemic exhibition by East Anglian artists. The show runs from 4th March until 11th March, open 12-6pm daily. The private view is 4th March 6-9pm.
Alice in Wonderland has been a subject that I’ve visited many times in my art work. I’m particularly influenced by the work of Sir John Tenniel and I had the great honour of examining his original Victorian etchings at the National Art Library at the V&A. I’ve collaged parts of the familiar Wonderland illustrations together to create a surreal reinterpretation.
The theme of time and distortion of scale and perspective are synonymous with Lewis Carroll’s Alice stories, but also resonate with the strange days we experienced in the pandemic. Personally, I found that all sense of organised time disappeared and distinguished only by light and dark – day and night.
More information about the exhibition TBA.
