Alice in Wonderland New York Metro mosaics
Twenty years ago New York based Argentinian artist Liliana Porter created four terracotta mosaic murals. In particular, “Alice: the way out” at the New York Metro Station (MTA Arts for Transit); 50th Station 1-9 lines (Manhattan). The idea of four mosaics on the walls of the station depicting Lewis Carroll’s character “Alice in Wonderland” – inspired by Broadway theaters located near the metro station.
Meanwhile, Liliana Porter left to the viewer the opportunity to supplement the details of shadow figures with their imagination. However, there are reasons that limit the flight of fantasy. And these reasons are simple – the childhood haunting illustrations by John Tenniel.
