What is it about Alice in Wonderland that inspires such brilliant art?





Besides the drugs.


EDIT:

Also, this incredible Chris Appelhans painting of Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum. A bit different than the Disney version!

Maybe just the alternate world--which is what art is, right? And it seemed to come at the right time, perhaps a time of antimythopoesis--my own word--and so the mythopoeic was required and the story stuck, became an enduring part of the Mind, and continues to inspire.

I think artists find it hard to relate to the real world sometimes and Alice certainly didn't understand it either. We feel comraderie with the little girl lost...

I'm afraid it's just the drugs. I've always been fascinated with the story and art and personally loved the influence in the whole Matrix movie trilogy...

Love your posts girly.
