Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

 The painting uses an interference/iridescent background which can be slightly disorientating. The colours from the text are overlayed upon the illustrations made by Sir John Tenniel for the original Lewis Carroll story.

 Again using collage of the Tenniel drawings, Alice disappears into the chessboard to re-emerge on the second chessboard and into the world of the viewer. This painting also shows how colours can be extremely unevenly dispersed amidst the text - well over half of them occurring in the last few pages, or the last few squares of the chessboard.

 A commissioned piece, this painting combines both of Carroll's texts and it is clear how much the Red and White Queens dominate the narrative.
