This exhibition brings together several series of works inspired by the stories read under that pear tree. The works include small tributes to the Australian artist Charles Blackman and Czechoslovakian stop motion animator Jan Švankmajer for their reinterpretation of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.

When I first read Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland as a child, I was surprised to read that she thought she may land in Australia as she fell down the rabit hole. This notion has stayed with me throughout my creative years, and was my first inspiration to begin a series of paintings and art dolls as early as 1990.
