Dream in Orange
Rosie Jackson 1995
Coloured copper etching, 15 x 10,5 cm
An embracing couple have escaped the scramble of the career ladder separating themselves from the grasping creatures behind them. They have experienced the dark sides of their natures symbolised by the apple of original sin and worked on their past through encounters with their inner child which they hold tenderly in their hands.
Now they are surveying the landscape of their dreams, duties, aspirations and sources of strength; their desire to flow without hesitation like the hungerfish in the river, to protect humans and trees (here branches become arms), to wonder at the exuberance of nature and to delight in the charms of music.
