The joy of harnessing all my visual references from Wilde's book – combined with the process of adapting and designing The Happy Prince for The Australian Ballet  - has allowed me to retell the story in a purely visual form as a gallery experience

Kim Carpenter AM

Artist & Theatre Creator

AN EXHIBITION OF 26 FRAMED ARTWORKS 

ON WATERCOLOUR PAPER

Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s immortal tale of 

The Prince and The Little Swallow

A story of love and sacrifice, tenderness and joy

There is a wonderful kind of youthful, fresh spontaneity about Kim's art. It is fresh and fruity – and honest

THE HAPPY PRINCE

The following sequence of pictures is intended to be viewed in sequence from 1 to 26.

Each picture – with its title and caption – follows the narrative that reflects Oscar Wilde’s original story.

Within that, individual pictures, will have personal appeal and indeed you would want to revisit.
