Alice in process…

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

Alice dreamed by Nikki Morris

 Nikki Morris

"Artists acrylic and watercolour on primed Bockingford 200lb Watercolour paper, matt varnished. 

Alice makes a return, she often appears when I have allot on my mind, I get inspired. I love these ones the most, where the surrealism is organic and comes from a place really personal but yet comes together visually just beautifully....will be my new screen saver across devices! 

Alice sits reading, the cover a nod to the First Edition again, but deliberately incomplete, is the 'Looking Glass' ice? water? mirror? It is not a complete reflection either, an ink pot and quill await her instruction, the time on the pocket watch reads 11:11 and a four leaf clover drinks ink from the inkwell. Dripping ink from the nib has gone through to the other side, making a 'cloud' of ink through the surface....I'll leave you to interpret, but it is intriguing, hopeful and feels inspirational to me. . Bright, fresh, striking feel to each, just LOVE how all the colours pop against one another giving them a lively contemporary feel" Nikki Morris
