Alice in Wonderland is an intriguing and wonderful story, which we are all familiar with from our childhoods. It can be seen as an allegory or a dream, or it can simply be enjoyed as a fantastical story you can lose yourself in. It is a rich seam of inspiration for artwork – from Arthur Boyd to Disney to children’s art projects.
Lynne, Meredith and Lisa all found the Alice in Wonderland story a source for their art. Lynne Foard (more about Lynne) & Meredith Plain (more about Meredith) have been friends since Lynne introduced Meredith to the joys of working with clay while she was giving classes at the Eltham Living and Learning Centre in the late 80s. Lynne has since focussed most of her creative energy on painting. When Meredith told Lynne that she was submitting some characters from The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for the Melbourne Teapot exhibition she found out that Lynne was midway through a series of Alice in Wonderland paintings. Lynne then learned that Lisa, her daughter, who was just completing an art qualification, was also working on the Alice theme. So, they decided to start planning this exhibition….
