42 Lewis Carroll Would Approve

Through the Stainted-Glass

Parvathi Subbiah

In Christ Church Hall at Oxford University, a series of stained-glass windows commemorate Lewis Carroll and his famous creations. Subbiah, inspired by the multiple triptychs of stained-glass medallions in the foyer of USC’s Doheny Memorial Library, combines water-color pencils, black markers, and ink for a large model of what could someday be our own Carrollian homages in the library. The title of her work plays off “Through the Looking-Glass” and includes her own coined portmanteau that combines “stained” and “painted.”
