Dreaming Alice: Maggie Taylor
Through the Looking-Glass

April 5, 2020 - January 3, 2021

Dreaming Alice celebrates internationally-acclaimed artist Maggie Taylor and her recent body of work, an illustration of "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There," by Lewis Carroll. Taylor has garnered widespread attention for her breakthrough use of technology in her art. Sixty-two photographs make aesthetically innovative use of 19th-century photography (daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes), as well as scanned images of insects, dolls, flora and fauna. Taylor's overpainting, texturizing and color additions to her own photographs generate steam-punk-like imagery, with a 21st-century take on the Victorian Era. The whimsical subject matter and unique form of photography will intrigue visitors of all ages.
