Odd Man Out #5: “Alice in a Lotus Blossom”

2018, dimensions variable, collage of found images composed on the computer.

Since it is a digital image, I can alter the size and proportions at will at least a bit without distorting the figures.

Here, Alice’s wonderland has been transformed. Rather than the smile of a Cheshire cat and the ramblings of Mr. Caterpillar, we have Alice, with her hands behind her, feet placed firmly on a pink lotus blossom floating in a pond, gazing at an army of both blue butterflies and a gaggle of cherubim flitting about. The background to these shenanigans appears to be the night sky. Alice is holding her counsel while being confronted by these heavenly creatures, both real and unreal.
