Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland must be one of the most frequently illustrated books on the planet – but the world has probably never seen anything close to Chris Hoggins’ interpretation of it!  His lovable-yet-slightly-sinister characters, the Dweeblings, are well known to  afficionados of the Kave Gallery, but this latest exhibition sees them indulging in uncharacteristic activities.
