Alice

( 1994 – 1996 )

My next series of Braille paintings focused on the writing of Lewis Carroll, who managed to conflate logic, emotion, and nonsense in hisAlice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.  Each book consists of a short chapter where characters interact, suddenly change, or disappear, and each of my paintings is made of one chapter’s pages, with their iconography and color choices expressing the characteristics and motifs (card games, chess) of Lewis’s narratives.
