Artist's description:

We all know the real reason Alice found the tea party so strange. Here she is passed out on the table, having scattered tea cups and bottles everywhere.

I love the idea of fairy tales, how sweet it can be on the surface but by looking a little deeper we can see the darker and twisted nature behind them. Alice in Wonderland can be explained so easily with a young woman's first experimentation with drugs and alcohol. The Mad Hatter is not crazy, the Cheshire Cat is a hallucination. It is no real surprise that "Chasing the white rabbit" and "Going down the rabbit hole" are euphemisms for taking drugs.

lbe aware this is a very, very big painting.
