Gallery Rouge is delighted to unveil brand new limited edition ‘A Happy Un-Birthday To You’ by Kerry Darlington. Following on from the huge success of ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’, this latest piece in the Alice in Wonderland series is sure to be another sell-out.
Taken from the scenes from the comic book released to coinside with the motion picture of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in which Alice attends the unbirthday party of Tweedledee and Tweedledum where Humpty Dumpty is also a guest. The comic book version is actually 32 pages longer than the animated film so collectors may not be so familiar with this chapter from Alice’s advertures.
In Chapter VI of Lewis Carrol’s original literature we learn that Alice at first doesn’t realize what an unbirthday is; however Humpty Dumpty excitedly explains that there is only one occasion a year in which to receive birthday presents and 364 days in which you are likely to receive an unbirthday present, making an unbirthday far superior! In Chapter VII Alice encounters The Lion and The Unicorn duelling to win the crown of The King and these characters are shown in the background, waiting to make their entrance.
Never wanting to compromise her innovative aesthetic, Kerry describes the way in which the edition is created; “Its what I call a ‘hand sculptured’ limited edition, all the 3d pieces on it are handpainted original little pieces of wood, it has metallics painted on top and is finished off with resin”. The edition is been created to ensure those collectors who have acquired ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ will be able to hang ‘A Happy Un-Birthday to You’ as a pair as they are both sized at 40 x 30 inches (image size).
