Alicenations by Wolfe von Lenkiewicz

Displacing and condensation are the basic jobs of dreams in freudian terms. Beyond that, I deeply honor the Great spirit of Collage awakened by Surrealism in Modern times and its practice has been my main artistic field and path for lucid dreams.

Here these pictures by Wolfe von Lenkiewicz reveal its potency in a magnificent and disturbing way renewing our inexhaustible diving in Alice's wells and hells. Picture like that  “re-sequence” cultural material decanted in our collective experience and open doors not just for the repressed unconscious or the collective archetypes but to the search for the alchemy of eternal creation and transformation. I love that. Brings pure alicinatory state.


" Wolfe von Lenkiewicz is an artist who employs some of the most well-known imagery in the history of art to create startling new forms that appear strangely familiar to the viewer – “re-sequencing” iconic works into contemporary pieces with a technique that intentionally mirrors that of genetic manipulation. For his forthcoming exhibition I Have An Excellent Idea Let’s Change The Subject he has re-sequenced John Tenniel’s classic illustrations from Alice In Wonderland, creating a heroine who references everything from the mysteries of alchemy to the cubist abstraction of Picasso.
