Alice in process…

Instead of the question “Who is Alice?” there are now paths leading to what Alice might come to be…

British artist Paul Skellett steps into Sir John Tenniel’s shoes to complete 
the illustration of Alice In Wonderland.

"Although many artists have been inspired over the decades to create their own take on the story it is widely acknowledged that the ultimate representation of Lewis Carroll’s imagination came to life through the original illustrations, realised by Tenniel; however there have been many experts and fans of the original release who have pointed to areas that were never illustrated… 

 To bring a new version of the original tale to life needed a very special approach. Working alongside leading Alice collector and expert, Dr. Selwyn Goodacre, former Lewis Carroll Society chairman, Mark Richards, and with the assistance of three libraries, between London and New York, Skellett has taken the lead in realising this updated set of illustrations for Alice In Wonderland. 

 His ongoing works are initially set to be unveiled at the end of 2015, with an anticipated publication of a book in 2016. The new edition will feature forewords by Dr. Goodacre and Mark Richards, with Goodacre further contributing his considered version of the original text. The exhibition shows these new illustrations, restored and remastered originals, plus a new take on Alice by the artist."
