Tax included.

An adroit storyteller, Charles Blackman’s rendition of Alice in Wonderland is askew. He opens on a shoe, unsuspecting but for the telltale window winking at it. This shoe is impossibly large - swollen to dwarf the world it walks.

For Blackman, Alice’s adventures in Wonderland were metaphoric of his then wife, Barbara’s, experience of blindness. All is topsy turvy in this reality, intractable and out of scale. What is whimsical, fast becomes disorientating.

‘Alice’s House’ is a captivating image. Quintessential Blackman, it will enliven collections of Blackman, works on paper and Alice in Wonderland. Walk a mile in this shoe.

Please allow up to 21 days for the framed iteration of this work to be ready.
