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.
