《重修旧好》00002 - Alice in Wonderland《爱丽丝梦游仙境》
Alice in Wonderland, an adventure story which I had dreamed since little. Without any prince charming or princess lovely, it speaks about a story of a girl who explores into an unknown world

Alice's world is filled with a lot of fantasy, talking flowers, an invisible Cheshire cat and Mr Caterpillar who can turn smoke into words, how cool is that!? Her imagination has provided me with an opportunity to expand my creativity.

Besides a focus on Alice's world, some local flavour was injected - the Kopitiam cup! And I can clearly visualise these two irrelevant elements merging into one.
During the making of Toffle's artwork, I bought a piece of fabric from a local fabric owner. While I was making my purchase, my eyes were set on a bunch of scrap ribbons hanging on the wall. It was with great delight that the shop owner gave me some of them voluntarily. It was a material that was previously used to band fabric rolls and it comes in 3 colours, but only the Mosaic Blue seems to shout for participation for this project.
A few months ago, at a swap party event, through the exchanging of my gift wrapping skills, I've received a few bags of old clothing. And I found an "old" new canvas - a vintage lace top for this project.

This artwork requires you to slow down your pace, like what Alice did in her story, with a curious mind to unveil hidden treasures.
