The movie Alice in the Wonderland and the book which is our artist's favorite childhood book is the inspiration of this artwork. The process, our artist Marina used, is called Papercutting. According to Wikipedia: Paper cutting or paper cutting is the art of cutting paper designs. The art has evolved uniquely all over the world to adapt to different cultural styles. Check it out and get more excited for the coming Holidays! Enjoy!

This series was created specially for the event (Oslo PopUp Exhibition in It Is So Collective gallery in Oslo, Norway). I changed the format of the designs I made in 2013 (from square 25x25 cm framed paper-cuts to the sphere compositions , d=10 cm) and created five new ones.

It took me 2 months to finish the project for all 10 ornaments.

In 2013, inspired with Alice in Wonderland story (which was my favorite book when I was a child), I started papercutting by creating the first 5 designs for this fairy-tale. Since then this theme has never got out of my head. So when I was invited to participate in Oslo Pop Up, I decided that it's a good opportunity to fulfill the Alice series with a few more scenes. And the idea of the unusual format for my paper-cuts came quite logically - the Christmas shop as Holidays are coming soon.

For 2, 5 D style I usually work with 300gr/m^2 design papers, Alice's stockings and blushed faces were painted with watercolors; white glue and plastic 10 cm ball forms.

My mantra is "I'm here and now!" Be proactive each moment of your life to feel alive. Don't kill the child in you, just keep playing! Think positive. I believe I can't change anything in global meaning but If I do my best and can make some people smile and feel warm because of my art then my efforts were not in vain.
