Alice In Dunderland Exhibit

Alice In Wonderland is a time honoured classic that’s been interpreted by everyone from Salvador Dali to Banksy … well, maybe not Banksy.

Alice in Dunderland is my own take on Alice. I use the story of her adventures to illustrate my own journey through life and link it to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey archetype – when one goes adventuring, it’s easier to find your way and return home if you have a map. I include my own art and that of other generous souls, because art always makes things clearer than words alone and adventures are better with friends.

Alice looks at the role of the arts, creativity, visual storytelling in cultural change and raising public awareness.

These generous souls and fellow-adventurers in Dunderland include Nina Angelo, Kathleen Aroha, Patrick Brooker, Robyn Brown, Paul Robert Burton, Luc de Bruy, Berengere de Tarle, Donna Cameron, Tim Heffernan, Daryl Kirkness, Debra Lansdowne, Jeannie Lawson, Cath McEwan, Teresa McLaren, Helen Menzies, Kevin P. Miller, Patrick O’Connor, Tracie Shoobert, Lavinia Smith-Lewis, Robyn Warburton, Tina Waters, Robert Whitaker …

The exhibition will include paintings, photography, mixed media works, upcycled Mad Hatter Tea Party furniture, clothing, fabric art and assorted quirky bits and pieces in keeping with the whimsy of The Red Tree in Tuggerah. All of this is designed to give as clear a picture as possible of the power and the effectiveness of the arts in dealing with mental/emotional distress.

How did Red Tree Theatre get its name?

The Foundation was inspired by The Red Tree (2001), a picture book written and illustrated by Shaun Tan. Richly illustrated, it presents a fragmented journey through a dark world, with images inspired by the experience of depression. The main character is a lonely red-headed girl. A red leaf from a red tree follows the girl through her day, stating how she feels and depicting her worries. Almost unnoticed in each picture is a small red leaf, symbolising hope. At the end, the little girl stands smiling at a beautiful red-leafed tree growing in her bedroom. See The Red Tree.

Elderslee Foundation recognises the connection between participation in cultural activity and the arts and well-being. We believe that by calling our major performance space Red Tree Theatre, we are taking our place in the creative community of the Central Coast, encouraging social connection and community cohesion, and making a positive contribution to the health and well-being of the community.

The Foundation commissioned Grant Maloney, a local artist to give expression to our Red Tree Theatre, and it is his evocative and dramatic painting in the foyer of our Centre that patrons see upon entering this space. This beautiful artwork reminds us of our shared humanity and the powerful connection between the arts, hopefulness and well-being.
