Queensland Arts Council toured this exhibition through Queensland and New South Wales.
Exhibitions manager Mia Kempel believes that by focusing on child-like subjects such as Alice in Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood, puppets and dolls, the works evoke an imagined adventure trail of Melanie Jai’s son’s experiences.
‘By using a highly stylised portraiture, Melanie connects with the fairytale land of villains and heroes that her son so often retreats to,’ said Ms Kempel.
The tour was extended due to booking demand.
