More details

Inspired by a painting that Baldwin saw in a museum in Mexico, a skeleton looms over a sleeping child. The composition has a dream-like quality as the central figure is asleep and is surrounded by a carnival-like scene with animals, freaky creatures, flags, anatomical diagrams and the skeleton looking away into the distance where we see the silhouette of a church.  Perhaps this is a parade of characters from the little girl’s dream, though the predominance of skeletal imagery - both human and animal- suggests the presence of death. Baldwin juxtaposes innocence and mortality, the sinister and the nostalgic in a carefully balanced and energetic work.
