Imran Shafi

In this piece, Shafi reflects on the Victorian polymath’s interest in the spiritual world. The result is a delicate work that reveals some of the psychology and creative potential within Carroll’s imagination. He declares in his artist statement that he operated from a purely instinctual state, akin to how Carroll might have composed his famous works. While Alice Liddell, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, the Gryphon, the Caterpillar, the White Rabbit, and Lewis Carroll himself are all identifiable, other characters may emerge on repeat viewings.
