Artist's Statement

My rather whimsical, abstract, fractal rendition of Alice's famous rabbit hole.

Besides being one of my favorite color schemes, I decided to use the contrasting reds and blues to give it a very dynamic, 'deep' feel, but intentionally went with the opposite of the conventional "warm colors forward" approach. To my eye, it gave it a disorienting backwards effect that seemed to go nicely with the Alice in Wonderland theme.

Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next. First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything; then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves; here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs. She took down a jar from one of the shelves as she passed; it was labelled `ORANGE MARMALADE', but to her great disappointment it was empty: she did not like to drop the jar for fear of killing somebody, so managed to put it into one of the cupboards as she fell past it.

`Well!' thought Alice to herself, `after such a fall as this, I shall think nothing of tumbling down stairs! How brave they'll all think me at home! Why, I wouldn't say anything about it, even if I fell off the top of the house!' (Which was very likely true.)

-- Charles L. Dodgson (Lewis Caroll)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, 1865
