An Alternative Alice in Wonderland Tea Party – new work

Posted on

I’m just finalising a new piece of work entitled: ‘An Alternative Alice in Wonderland Tea Party’.

I have created this piece for an exhibition I was invited to submit for in March entitled ‘Milk and Two’.

Milk & Two Pop Up Gallery co. presents: Exhibition ‘Brew’

Milk & Two is a pop up gallery with intent to entice the public into the gallery space using the power of tea & art, hence ‘Brew’.

Our chosen theme corresponds with the traditional English dialogue of cockney rhyming slang and represents the word ‘Brew’, meaning cup of tea. The saying Milk & Two also implies a unity & a coming together of two separate entities to create an interaction which is an ethos we aim to portray through our pop up gallery-come-cafe. The cafe culture in art can be referred back to the turn of the 20th century in the modernist era, where like-minded creatives such as Picasso & his cubist comrades gathered to make & discuss art out of the studio & in a socially engaging & inspiring environment. Milk ‘n’ Two aims to emulate this communal but creative culture into a contemporary setting by encouraging the public into the gallery through the inviting name of Milk & Two & the allure of ‘Brew’ Exhibition.’

Alice in Wonderland - an Alternative Tea Party

Naturally I found a way of incorporating Fashion Dolls into this theme; I have always had a love of Alice in Wonderland as it immediately conjures up images of eccentric characters and surreal surroundings at a tea party and I relish the idea of using it as a starting point………..this was a perfect opportunity!

I just need to add a few more small details to the background and I aim to mount and frame it over the weekend.

Illustrations for Youth Crime prevention Project.

Posted on Updated on

Over Christmas I created a series of Illustrations for Media Company ‘Potential Productions’, to be used for deterring crime and anti-social behaviour amongst young people in the Pimlico area (the on-going illustrations were shown to focus groups of vulnerable young people in danger of becoming involved in gangs and with knife crime).
