..... " "We are all exiles from the First Eden, we can never go home again, the cherubims with flaming swords will deny us entry. But we can take a journey to a secondary but real Eden constructed by aesthetic magic. Alicia's Paper Batik Paintings are a tantalizing hint of that Second Eden. Her pictures have the quality of Eve-before-the-Apple innocence, there are no complicated serpent images, no odd fig leaf shapes.
The paintings are the dreams that Eve dreamt when she was still a rib. The colours shout the joy of an Adam roused from his slumbers. And the colours are baptismally fresh, Eve white fusing with Adam yellow, twig brown growing into a bud green, moon silver welcoming a twilight grey. The Batik lines are the rope of a nine year old girl skipping in a secret garden she has accidentally discovered. And as I look at the paintings posted on her blog, I say in my heart, "Yes, I know Eden again, but now as a sophisticated paradise, not a naive one and in knowing it discover it was never at any moment totally absent from us!"
