LULLABY ISLANDS

LULLABY ISLANDS
Floating with their treasured islands, shadowed men protectively grasp and cradle their gilded lullabies. An island is at once a paradise and a prison. A place of initial retreat and eventual isolation. The paper-clay figures with arms out-stretched are over weighed by the object of their desire. The blackened figures at once appear to entrap and caress their treasure. The two large men in We Covet appear suspicious of each other, unsure whether to share their golden island with the other. Neither recognising the similarities within their protected spaces. These figures are at once lullabied by their islands and sing for their imagined island apart.
