Here is my finished piece for Duirwaigh Galleries "A Walk through Wonderland" show!
Since the Mad creator herself.."Angie" has posted pictures of my Alice piece for her show on her site... I thought I would finally show the finished piece here!http://www.messagefromthemuse.typepad.com/duirwaigh/
Alice... who has been wondering in wonderland a bit too long... and her dolly "March Hare" who both have imbided in to much "tea" at the party and have gone a "bit mad here"!!
Alice is free standing and 10" tall. The overall theater piece is 16" high by 7" wide.
Alice's clothes are made from antique textiles and hand dyed lime green leather victorian shoes. Wild "mad" mohair wig, and hand painted pinkish/blue eyes. Hand made top hat complete with leather Rabbit ears!
Her "Mad Wonderland Theater Box" was an after- thought... and, once I started it, I thought I was truly "mad" for coming up with the idea to do it !! Although, I think it greatly adds something to the piece, I had no idea of what I was doing, and it was like a bad "Twilight Zone movie that just went on and on and on........ the never ending story...no wait ..thats another movie!!
I took photos of the creation of the "mad box" as I went along.... so keep watching and I'll be posting photos of the, "how I did it",... while I was still half sane!..or not..a matter of opinion!
