Art Description

Painting: Oil and Paint on Canvas.

I am interested in exploring the strangely beautiful environments children inhabit. A seemingly ordinary tea party, or tea cup, is quite extraordinary when seen through the eyes of a child.
One major source of inspiration is the book Alice in Wonderland. Alice is constantly bombarded with fleeting, ever changing rules. Asked by the Cheshire cat at the croquet game, “How are you getting on?” Alice replies “….they don’t seem to have any rules in particular; at least, if there are, nobody attends to them.”
Indeed, the world Alice has come upon is a strange one. The child’s inner world is often much like Alice’s: fraught with ambiguity and uncanny beauties. It is precisely this absurd realm that I strive to capture in my work.
